Mamelodi Sundowns Fans Respond to Komphela’s Concerns about Team Fatigue

Home » Mamelodi Sundowns Fans Respond to Komphela’s Concerns about Team Fatigue

A recent statement from former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Steve Komphela expressing concerns about the team’s potential fatigue due to their busy competition schedule has ignited mixed reactions among supporters.

Despite their recent loss in the MTN8 and being knocked out of the Carling Knockout, Mamelodi Sundowns still have a packed schedule with commitments in the CAF Champions League, Premier Soccer League, African Football League, and Nedbank Cup.

Some fans firmly believe that the Brazilians have the depth and resources to handle such a busy calendar and advise Komphela to focus his attention on Moroka Swallows.

Critics point out that Sundowns currently boast a squad of 45 players, making Komphela’s concerns appear unfounded. Nathi Mabutane, one such critic, has even hinted at rumors that Komphela might still be receiving a salary from former team.

In response to these comments, Komphela has been urged to concentrate on his role at Swallows and not interfere with Sundowns’ affairs. Some argue that such interference makes him appear as a “bitter ex,” with Thapelo Maseko, a Sundowns supporter, emphasizing that Komphela should leave the Brazilians alone.

One fan even questioned Komphela’s role as a spokesperson for Sundowns, suggesting that the club’s management is best suited to deal with their own issues.

The debate has drawn parallels with former Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane’s tendency to comment on other clubs when questioned. Derrick Masinga has raised the question of whether there is a line that should not be crossed when speaking about rival clubs.

Others have pointed out that it’s entirely up to the club to manage their potential fatigue, as Komphela should remain focused on the Birds. Padi Pablo Bogoshi argues that discussing Sundowns’ fatigue is unnecessary, as the club will handle it in due course.

Suggestions for Sundowns to sign more players next season have also emerged as a potential solution to prevent player burnout. The debate takes into consideration the heavy schedule that the club faces, including their involvement in the Super League and the potential for suspensions and injuries.

Ultimately, while opinions differ among the fans, Thembi Mike is confident that Sundowns will silence all critics and prove their worth by the end of the season.
