It came as no surprise when Soccer Laduma officially broke the news that Steve Komphela is considering to bring Mandla Ncikazi to the Kaizer Chiefs technical team.
The pair have worked together at Maritzburg United and there is a possibility for the two to unite again at Naturena. Komphela was optimistic about bringing trophies in his first season with the club, but things didn't turn the way he wants as he has not bought even a single trophy to the Amakhosi's cabinet.
When he was appointed as the head coach of the club at the beginning of the season, the were rumours that Doctor Khumalo will not be his assistant coach, but the rumours were wrong. Even a blind person can see what Steve's intention is? If Mandla joined the Glamour Boys, then he will replace Doctor Khumalo as assistant coach. Apparently coach Komphela was criticised for his failure to win games, yet, on the other hand, it looks like he doesn't feel comfortable working with Khumalo as his assistant coach.
The main reason could be that Steve feel like Doctor Khumalo is after his job, in that case it will be best for Komphela to work with someone he trusts.
Should Steve Komphela keep Doctor Khumalo as his assistant coach, or is it the right time to bring Ncikazi to the club?
