DURBAN – Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Keagan Buchanan doesn’t hold any grudges against Steve Komphela. Buchanan is now with Maritzburg United having left Chiefs where he hardly got game time under Komphela.
Buchanan appeared for the first time in this past weekend for The Team of Choice as they succumbed 1-0 to Lamontville Golden Arrows in the quarterfinal of the KwaZulu-Natal Premier’s Cup at Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu.
“I have nothing against Komphela. I have a lot of respect for him.Maybe I didn’t fit in his style of play. You have to respect the coach’s decision.”
He is hoping to revive his career at Maritzburg: “I’ve grown strong mentally. I’ve seen the other side of football. I feel I can bring my experience to my new team.
I’m trying to get back to my best. I’m also trying to understand the coach expects from me. It was great to play the whole 90 minutes. My normal game will come,” he added.
