Steve Komphela seems to be resurrected at Bloemfontein Celtic, and he is now looking ahead to a reunion with Kaizer Chiefs after seeing off Orlando Pirates.
Celtic made it three wins from three games as they defeated Pirates 1-0 at the Free State Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Komphela failed to secure a league win against Pirates during his time with Chiefs, but he masterminded Celtic’s victory over the Buccaneers this afternoon.
Ahead of their clash with Chiefs, Komphela insists emotions will no play no part as he faces off against his former employers.
“It’s only fair not to be emotional. This one is out of our way take it one game at a time,” Komphela told SuperSport.
“Then we’ll go into the next match look at what their strengths are, weaknesses and where we can probably work better.”
On the win over Pirates, Komphela felt it was vital to get the early goal through Bongani Sam.
“But the most important one was that we scored a goal and when Bongani [Sam] scored you could see the kid losing himself. I said at halftime that listen even if I were him I’d do the same [take off the shirt in celebration]. In fact I’d literally walk home. A kid scoring in a big match of this calibre. When he threw the shirt I knew that listen you can’t do anything about it you just need to protect him. I’m happy with the result for them,” he said.
