Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune says he “didn’t pay much attention” to comments by Orlando Pirates assistant coach Rulani Mokwena about how the Amakhosi are missing Steve Komphela’s “tactical acumen”.
Khune was speaking at a press conference organised by the Premier Soccer League on Wednesday in Johannesburg, and which was broadcast on the Chiefs Facebook page.
Mokwena had a dig at Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas by saying that Komphela was a “big loss for Chiefs from a technical perspective and the type of leader that he is as well as the tactical acumen that he possesses”.
He added that “if you compare the previous team to this team – from an organisational perspective, you can clearly see the lack of a coach of that calibre.
“Without taking anything away from the current head coach, but I do think with Steve you can see how they played last season and this season, from the minute details, the loss that has taken place.”
