Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has sympathised with Orlando Pirates counterpart Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.
The Serbian last week expressed the opinion that in his well-travelled career he has never seen such poor finishing as in South African football.
And after watching his Chiefs side play to a 1-1 draw at home to Free State Stars on Saturday evening, Komphela can understand the Bucs coach’s point of view.
“I remember Micho said he’s getting tired of the same response, it’s based out of the same circumstances and outcome,” Komphela is quoted by Kick-Off.
“I don’t know if you read one of his reports during the week when he spoke of goal-scoring in South Africa.
“I got into that and one of the lines he pulled was that he’s travelled through 138 countries, am I right?
“And he has never seen such a poor return on goal-scoring in South Africa.
“And I’m not trying to bring South Africa’s problem into Kaizer Chiefs, but it goes to what we are saying.
“Now we as coaches, how do we solve a problem? You can never get tired when you are working on something.
“It is even better when you can see the problem, so that you can provide a solution.”
