Steve Komphela and Mamelodi Sundowns story revealed. There is no smoke without fire so this rumor might turn into a true story.
It is said that Mr Steve Komphela resigned at Golden Arrows to join Mamelodi Sundowns as their new head coach.
“The coach is in Jo’burg as we speak. I saw him arrive at the OR Tambo International Airport this evening and I hear that he is on his way to Sundowns. He was with some guy and we had a brief chat and all I can say is that I wish the coach everything of the best,” said the source.
Steve Komphela can handle a big team because he coached before the biggest team in South Africa Kaizer Chiefs so he knows the pressure.
This is what he said when Ernst Middendorp failed to win the trophie for Kaizer Chiefs
“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 during a Carling Black Label event in Johannesburg on Wednesday.
“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.”
