Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela expects more from Joseph Molangoane

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believes new signing Joseph Molangoane was initially trying too hard to impress at Naturena but is starting to find his feet.
Molangoane, who switched allegiance from a reluctant Chippa United earlier this month, netted his first goal for Chiefs in a 3-2 win over Polokwane City on December 20, a result which snapped an eight-game winless run for the Soweto giants.
The winger followed that up with a man-of-the-match display in the 2-0 victory over Golden Arrows before the festive break, setting up Siphiwe Tshabalala's second goal with a superb cross.
"He's doing well but I thought when he started he was trying too hard, you know how it is. When you start too hard, nothing works," said Komphela.
"You got to be at ease, relax and have confidence. And this performance [against Arrows], this match, you have to buy supporters and make them understand by selling yourself.
"You show the qualities that you have and I'm sure they have seen it now. Now without giving him license not to perform, they know what to expect even if he's not performing at his best. They know what he's capable of. I'm happy for him," concluded Komphela, who previously worked with Molangoane at Platinum Stars.
Amakhosi are a point behind log leaders SuperSport United, and will resume their league campaign against Free State Stars on February 7 at FNB Stadium.
