Chiefs have not won any trophy under Steve Komphela since he joined the club two seasons ago.

Komphela took all the blame for the team’s shortcomings diverting the heat from the players.

“It’s unfair for the coach to put the blame solely on himself‚” Khune told The Sowetan.

“We’re all in the same boat. We all have to shoulder the blame because we as the players on the field‚ we aren’t delivering.

“It’s about time that we step up and make our fans happy. The past two seasons haven’t been our seasons. We are looking forward to this season. We want to reclaim our glory.

“The only way to turn things around is to perform to the best of our abilities. The coaches prepare us well as players but sometimes we as players lose concentration in the last minute of the game.”
