Steve Komphela tells us the truth bout Ernst Middendorp. Steve is one of the most respected coaches in South Africa and you will never hear him talking bad about anyone.
“They were almost there. It was just a matter of 30 minutes and I felt so sorry for Ernst Middendorp. Our job is a thankless job,” Komphela said .
“I felt so sorry for Ernst because who could ever go through that? You’re on top of the log for the whole season, convincingly so, you have a gap of double digits, with 30 minutes to go, and then you lose it.
“My man, I still respect him for the strength he portrayed. But listen, it’s part of the game. It could have happened to anyone.”
“Let me take this opportunity to congratulate Gavin Hunt and wish him all the best. A very close friend of mine, make no mistake,” he added.
“I don’t think, with utmost respect to all available coaches in the country, I don’t think there is anyone more deserving. He deserves the shot as well. He has the pedigree.”
Do you think Steve was right ?
