Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed the return of experienced coach Steve Komphela to their technical team following the unexpected departure of head coach Rhulani Mokwena. Mokwena, who was under contract with the club until June 2027, parted ways with Sundowns in a mutually agreed decision just days ago.

In a swift move to reinforce their coaching staff, Sundowns have brought Komphela back into the fold.

The former head coach of Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka Swallows had only recently taken the helm at Golden Arrows in March, following his departure from the Dube Birds in February.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “Mamelodi Sundowns have welcomed Steve Komphela who will serve as Senior Coach and will assist Manqoba Mngqithi and the Technical Team.”

Expressing his enthusiasm about his return, Komphela said, “I am very excited to be back at Mamelodi Sundowns where I was always inspired and treated with respect and love.

I am committed to contributing to the Club achieving its goals in South Africa and on the African Continent.”

Komphela’s reappointment is seen as a strategic move by Sundowns to maintain stability and continuity within their coaching ranks.

His previous tenure with the club and his vast experience in South African football are expected to be invaluable assets as the team prepares for the upcoming season.

The club is currently training in South Africa, gearing up for the new season. As part of their pre-season preparations, Sundowns will soon travel to Austria, where they will continue their training and participate in several friendly matches to fine-tune their strategies and build team cohesion.

Komphela’s return has been met with positive reactions from the Sundowns’ fan base, who hold him in high regard for his professionalism and coaching acumen.

His familiarity with the club’s culture and his rapport with the players are anticipated to facilitate a smooth transition and reinforce the team’s performance objectives.

Mamelodi Sundowns have set high ambitions for the upcoming season, both domestically and on the African continent. With Komphela’s experience and leadership, the club aims to build on their previous successes and continue their pursuit of excellence.

As Sundowns head into the new season, the focus will be on integrating Komphela back into the technical setup and ensuring that the team is well-prepared to face the challenges ahead.

The pre-season tour in Austria will be a crucial period for the squad to solidify their tactics and develop the synergy needed for a successful campaign.

In conclusion, Steve Komphela’s return to Mamelodi Sundowns marks a significant development in the club’s preparations for the new season.

His experience, familiarity with the club, and commitment to its goals are expected to play a pivotal role in Sundowns’ quest for domestic and continental success.
