Komphela pleads to Chiefs supporters to be patient and not to expect too much too soon from the Venezuelan attacker.

Paez joined the Glamour Boys after a successful trial at Naturena. Chiefs have release two attackers in Siphelele Mthembu and Edward Manqele to free up spots in their striking department.

“Don’t put too much pressure on him, we always perform at our best when there is less pressure. We are appealing to our supporters that he is going to score, and a lot of goals, I assume, and I hope it happens fast enough so give him time. I know there is no time at Chiefs, but give him time.”
