Steve Komphela has joined the Mamelodi Sundowns’ technical team as a senior coach.

The former Bafana Bafana interim coach resigned as the head coach of Golden Arrows on Sunday to take up this new position.

Sundowns already have Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena as joint coaches and it appears that the role will be more of assisting the duo.

The club has had to restructure their technical team after the sudden exit of Pitso Mosimane together with fitness trainer Kabelo Rangoaga and performance analyst Musi Matlaba. The trio have joined Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

“I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Chairperson of Lamontville Golden Arrows, Mato Madlala and to Golden Arrows FC for their support and encouragement whilst I was the head coach,” Komphela said in a statement.

“Mato Madlala and Arrows contributed to my development and growth in football and I will forever be grateful to her and Golden Arrows.

“I have been given an exciting opportunity to join Mamelodi Sundowns as a senior coach to work with its joint head coaches Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena.

“I look forward to this exciting challenge and hope to contribute to the growth and success of Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa and on the African continent.”

Sundowns media officer Shupi Nkgadima confirmed that Komphela would be reporting to Mngqithi and Mokwena.

Komphela has a close relationship with Mokwena, whom he promoted from the junior teams to be his assistant for the first time at Platinum Stars more than a decade ago.
