Experienced South African coach Steve Komphela says he's writing an autobiography that he hopes people can use as a manual in their lives.

Currently with Golden Arrows, the well-travelled mentor has done his time in the Absa Premiership, most notably with Free State Stars and Maritzburg United while also enjoying a stint with Bafana Bafana.

He has been a beacon of wisdom and knowledge over the years and now explains he is using his time away from the game, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, to work on his book which will recall his time as a player from Kroonstad to Turkey and into his coaching years.

Speaking to IOL Sport, the 52-year-old spoke glowingly of 'The definitive biography of Steve Mbuyi Komphela'.

Yes, there will [be an autobiography]. I'm busy working on that. I hope very soon it will come out. This has given me enough time. There's a lot that I'm bringing together. But I just want it to make sense," he said.

The 52-year-old added: "This thing of writing books shouldn’t be fashionable. You don’t want to write a book and somebody reads the book and throw it away. You want someone to read the book and use it as a manual and refer to that book."

When the Absa Premiership season was halted, Golden Arrows were seventh in the 16-team standings with eight wins from 23 matches.
