According to Siya sources, the former Kaizer Chiefs coach was spotted at the OR Tambo International Airport on Sunday afternoon in what appeared to be his return from KwaZulu-Natal.

Komphela has been with Arrows since December 2018, having arrived at the KZN club from a stint with Bloemfontein Celtic.

Along with Mandla Ncikazi who has been his assistant, the 53-year-old coach guided Arrows to 12th place finish on the log at the end of the 2019/20 season. 

“The coach is in Jo’burg as we speak. I saw him arrive at the OR Tambo International Airport this evening and I hear that he is on his way to Sundowns. He was with some guy and we had a brief chat and all I can say is that I wish the coach everything of the best,” said the source.  

Attempts have been made to get a comment from Arrows team manager Nonceba Madlala but her phone rang unanswered.
