As the Absa Premiership resumes this weekend from its Christmas break there are five coaches in the league who should be looking over their shoulders for the administrative axe.
1Steve Komphela‚ Kaizer Chiefs
Komphela knows he needs to deliver in the next six months to extend his contract. And if consistent winning results don’t come sooner than that‚ he might not even see out the season.
But after two-and-a-half seasons without a trophy‚ the club must be losing patience. And the signings will only increase the urgency to perform‚ so might just ramp up the pressure on the coach too.
Chiefs are in a healthy third place‚ and have just made a raft of quality January signings in Leonardo Castro‚ Siphelele Ntshangase and Kabelo Mahlasela‚ so Komphela should be smiling.
