Newly appointed Technical Director of MTC Premiership side Young Chiefs stated that they will chase success with the quality of players they have in their ranks. Komeya, Brave Gladiators assistant coach, relishes his appointment as Young Chiefs head of football affairs and is looking to make history with the Oshakati-based side.
“The team is great and we have big plans for the team. We have quality young players and we want to improve and be successful in our maiden season in the Premiership. There will be a lot of challenges and my experience and expertise will be needed to help steer the team to where we want to be,” he said.
A founder-member and former player at Young Chiefs in 1996, Komeya added that being the only side in the league from the north, there is added pressure for them to do well.
“We are representing a lot of people and the better we play it will be ideal for more people to support us and help the team in our endeavours to succeed. We have to work hard and try to make those who believe in us proud,” he said.
The former Tigers’ star also plans to establish women football league in the north. “My heart is still with women football and setting up a league this side is on my mind and looks very positive with the help from Jackey Gertze and Jacqui Shipanga”.
Komeya is also acting head coach of the club since the first round of league action up next welcomes the battle against Rundu Chiefs at Uukwangula Stadium at Oshakati.
“There is no head coach currently and I will act as one. Facing Rundu Chiefs this weekend, we are ready to make sure we win at home. You must also expect great football from my players. The boys are determined and focused on what we need to achieve as a club. It has been a long journey and we know our home games will be very important in our league cause,” said Komeya.
