Six Coaches That Could Replace Komphela At Chiefs

Who Could Replace Steve Komphela At Kaizer Chiefs?

100 days. That’s how long is left to run on Steve Komphela’s Kaizer Chiefs contract, and there are already several names being linked with the post in case he leaves.
 
Click right above to take look through Chiefs' head coach candidates
 
Komphela’s future at Naturena hangs in the balance at present, with the club enduring a barren spell of more than two and a half years, and currently finding themselves sat seven points behind the Absa Premiership leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns.
 
 
While the league title is not mathematically out of the question, Chiefs being in fifth place does suggest that it would need a minor miracle if they were going to push four other teams out of the way, with the Nedbank Cup being Komphela’s most realistic shot at silverware before his deal expires.
 
Chiefs take on Baroka later this month in the quarter-finals of the tournament, and defeat would mean that they will – in all likelihood – end another season without getting their hands on a trophy.
 
The Siya crew has already reported that whether Komphela gets a new contract or not could rely on picking up a trophy this season, and with that in mind, Amakhosi’s management has already started putting out some feelers regarding a possible replacement.
 
Luc Eymael, Doctor Khumalo, Stuart Baxter and Manqoba Mngqithi have all been linked as potential successors if they become available, while coaches such as Eric Tinkler and Ruud Krol are both free agents and on the possible lookout for their next move. 
 
 
Luc Eymael
Eymael has done a fine job at Free State Stars, turning them from relegation candidates to title contenders, and it is believed that he is one of the favourites, should he be open to the move.
 
Doctor Khumalo
Doc is currently at Baroka, but would no doubt leap at the chance of a return to Soweto – especially as a head coach.
 
Stuart Baxter 
Baxter had a very successful spell with the Glamour Boys, guiding them to two league titles, but any move for the Englishman would require a departure from his current job with Bafana Bafana.
 
Manqoba Mngqithi
The same could be said for Mngqithi, who has made a good name for himself at Mamelodi Sundowns.
 
Eric Tinkler
Before leaving SuperSport United not so long ago, he guided them to the CAF Confederation Cup final and won the MTN8, and has won two trophies in total since the start of last season.
 
Ruud Krol
Krol’s name always seems to come up when it comes to jobs in South Africa, despite the fact that he hasn’t worked in Mzansi since leaving Pirates in 2011.
 
Who would be your choice as Chiefs’ new head coach if Komphela goes?

I Krill,Doc/Tinkler can do better job even Baxter but a problem with Baxter is that he's still concentrating on his big job for Bafana Bafana otherwise it was going to be good to see him and Doc back @ Chiefs they were doing great job together although according Bobby's decisions it look like it 'll not be happening.

Emayel also sounds promising. I got to say I'm wondering what the current technical director is doing at Chiefs. Maybe he was assisting up to the Multi choice team because I noticed they started playing a better brand of football, especially in 2018 while Cowphela is fixed on playing soccer.

The truth is that teams like Chiefs, Dunusa and Rats are not a preschool. Chiefs needs a coach with a proven mettle or track record, be it a local or a foreign coach. Steve will be better suited at a team that is fighting not to lose than a team fighting to lose. As we speak, teams like Maritzburg and FFS wouldn't hire Steve because they have a winning mentality instilled in them. The idea that he might venture into Africa to coach some minnows is a brilliant one. At least he can go there and stop that team from conceding. A Ruud Krol or Gavin Hunt are coaches that I wouldn't mind. It would be an insult to us if Chiefs were to hire Manqoba. An assistant of Pitso cannot come into Chiefs and be a head coach. As for Mabedi, whoever comes in must replace him as well. We value contributions of guys like Manqoba and Rhulani because of their contribution as assistant coaches, but at Chiefs I don't think ours has the balls to impose his views on the coach. Mabedi is as guilty as Steve.

It is not about who is available to coach fau, if that is the question, the list is endless if you take into consideration the availability of Jacob Sakala and Thobejane.

For as long as it isn't Hristo Stoichkov or Rhulani and Micho in the list, I'm at peace....I see no-one who can challenge Pirates next season. Next season we will be a force to be reckoned with.

Prof Komphela will be reminding family business that next season is his time to turn setbacks into comebacks in an attempt to have his stay extended.
