Steve Komphela Quotes Do The Rounds In Spanish Media

Kaizer Chiefs boss Steve Komphela's recent quotes on FC Barcelona superstar Neymar have made it into one of Spain's biggest football publications. 

Ozil Makes Announcement On His Arsenal Future

Following Chiefs' 3-0 win over Stellenbosch FC in the Nedbank Cup at the weekend, Komphela bemoaned his side's showboating after Gustavo Paez scored Amakhosi's third and final goal in the 82nd minute.

Komphela was unhappy to see his side concede possession so cheaply as a result of unnecessary showboating during the final stages of the match.

The head coach was quoted in Spanish publication Marca saying that skills should only be hailed if they are required to get out of a certain situation, comparing Neymar's trickery to that of players in South Africa.

"You still want to give the fans the skill and flair that they want but you must also do it in a manner that is productive. When Neymar has the ball in the corner and he flips it over someone's head, the world says 'What great skill that is, what a player,'" he said.

"When we do it in South Africa in a manner that is productive the same must go, and if not, we as coaches have to reprimand the player."

Neymar often receives criticism for his showboating in La Liga, which tends to result in players taking their frustrations out on him with crunching tackles.

Many players who have played against the Brazilian have spoken ill of his antics, despite many being entertained by the 25-year-old's flair.

KC have always won and took trophies, not with the most expensive of players. In fact Motaung has always guarded against a practice where players are over priced and inflated locally but the same cant hold true when they are sold else where outside our borders. Chiefs were highly disturbed by the sudden departure of well trusted and relied upon players including the most well educated Engineer of the game in Baxter. But most notable and destructive is indeed Management's own doing in their lack of foresight. It flabbergasts me to this day that an educated bunch with a historical experience like we have in Chiefs couldn't have anticipated that the talent that have contributed to their success, would soon tire and that must be equally met with rising, equally superb talent which will take over? In fact, my unproven conspiracy theory still remains that Baxter, was fired because he started calling for a bigger purse to continue his Fine Display but might have been met with a Strong Many who still believed that this cow still had milk to shed... How ruthless wrong they were.

ENTERTAINMENT GOES WITH GREATER RESPONSIBILITY,PLAYERS NEED TO ENJOY THE GAME BUT REMEMBERS THAT WE WORK IN BIG OFFICES WITH A LOT OF OPPOSITION SUPPORTERS AND LOSING CAUSES US HAPPINESS IN THE OFFICE. IN A KNOCK OUT COMPETITION AND LEADING BY 4-0 TRICKS CAN BE ALLOWED BUT ON THE OPPOSITIONS HALF. PLAYERS WHO HAVE AMBITIONS OF GOING AND PLAY OVERSEES THEN STICK TO THE MOVING FORWARD TRICKS, AS ENTERTAINMENT IS WINNING ABROAD.
