Swallows players on strike over non-payments

Moroka Swallows Football Club head coach Steve Komphela says his team boycotted training amid wage disputes in the build-up to their clash against SuperSport United.

“For ten days we were not training, but I was there from morning to evening. I had to do my job. I was trying to solve the problem, said Kompela”

Komphela had to convince his players to honour the fixture at the eleventh hour.

“I had to send a voice note to the players, to tell them to report for duty. It would have been bad not to honour the fixture. The result is bad but do you want to tell me what is worse? I will take a bashing trying to protect the game.

“We could have taken the easy way out and cancelled the match but we are trying to solve the problem. Where we are at is a culmination of what has been happening. We can’t hide from this.”

“Look I think we have enough quality in the team, I just think they have not been given enough opportunities as individuals and I think the way we assess them, or the way we analyse them as part of the Chiefs family.

“I think that needs to be a little better between myself and my coaching staff. Because then we can give them more, they can be more positive towards themselves.

“If you did come to Kaizer Chiefs as an average player, then we will make you a better player. I think we need to get in their skin right now and there are good players, said coach Kompela.
