Mamelodi Sundowns have cleared the air on what Steve Komphela’s new role at the club entails following confirmation that he has joined the technical team.

It was confirmed by the club on Monday morning that the former Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars coach had resigned from his Golden Arrows post to team up with his protégé Rulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mnqgithi, who were last weekend appointed joint coaches.

Komphela said in his exit statement he was going to Chloorkop to become a “senior coach”, but did not clarify what that meant.

Downs head of communications, Shupi Nkgadima, explained the role further.

“Mr Komphela is coming in as a Senior Coach, reporting to the joint Head Coaches, Mnqgithi and Mokwena,” he told journalists.

It is expected that Komphela will begin his duties with immediate effect, while Arrows now have to begin their search for a replacement.

The 2020/21 season kicks off this weekend with the MTN8 and will be followed by the Dstv Premiership a week later.

Sundowns also had to recently make changes to their technical team after Pitso Mosimane’s abrupt departure to join Al Ahly late last month.
