Komphela’s Downs Contract Length Revealed

Following his surprise move to Mamelodi Sundowns as a “senior coach”, the Siya crew has been informed of Steve Komphela’s contract length at Chloorkop.

The former Kaizer Chiefs mentor ditched Golden Arrows for a seat on the Downs bench and, according to the club, will report to joint head coaches Manqoba Mnqgithi and Rulani Mokwena, who took over from Pitso Mosimane.

Now, indications are that Komphela has put pen to paper on a three-year deal and will be hoping that another stint at one of Mzansi’ Big Three clubs brings an avalanche of trophies this time around – he spent three seasons at Chiefs without winning a trophy.

But it’s not really his head that is on the chopping block in this instance, given that his role is more of an assistant to the two joint head coaches.

It’s expected that Komphela has probably signed a lucrative contract at Sundowns when you consider he left a job as a head coach to report to his peers, but he will care less about titles and more about what he could achieve there.

Downs won the league and cup treble last season under Mosimane, who has also left his position abruptly to join Al Ahly on a two-year deal.  

Both Mnqgithi and Mokwena recently signed four-year contracts.
