Steve Komphela is the new coach of Chippa United, as was predicted by the Siya crew.
The news of Komphela taking over the hot seat at Chippa was revealed by Soccer Laduma last week.
Chippa’s communications and marketing manager, Luthando Zibeko, confirmed that Komphela has signed for the club.
“Look, he has signed as a coach, but we will be releasing all the details during the course of the week,” said Zibeko.
The Chilli Boys recently gained promotion to the PSL under Vladislav Heric, after only one season in the NFD. The club decided to go for a coach with PSL experience as they prepare for life in the PSL in the 2014/15 season.
Komphela coached Free State Stars and Maritzburg United respectively in the 2013/14 season. Chippa United are also in the process of relocating to Port Elizabeth.
