Stuart Baxter has stated that he would consider Steve Komphela as his assistant at Bafana if he was not contracted to Chiefs. This has brought mixed emotions from the Amakhosi faithful because Baxter, since leaving Chiefs, has been signing former Amakhosi players.
Chiefs fans who want Komphela to leave are hoping that Stuart would do the same thing that he did when he signed the likes of Reyaad Pieterse, Keagan Ritchie and Reneilwe Letsholonyane, just to name a few. Komphela has arguably been one of Kaizer Chiefs' worst coaches in history, leading them to two trophy barren seasons. Mzansi's biggest club is not used to finishing a season without collecting at least a single trophy.
Amakhosi would likely not hesitate to release Komphela from the remainder of his contract as they did with the likes of Mashamaite or Masango.
Is Baxter being arrogant when stating that he would consider Komphela if he was not contracted, considering that he is the one who recommended him to Amakhosi management in the first place?
