Steve Komphela has been appointed new Golden Arrows coach, barely 24 hours after quitting his job at Bloemfontein Celtic.
The former Kaizer Chiefs gaffer handed in his resignation on Thursday due to the Celtic’s lack of financial resources. He left Celtic in seventh place on the Absa Premiership standings.
Arrows confirmed the appointment of Komphela Friday with a cheeky tweet saying, “Get your dictionaries out!! Class is in session. We can now confirm that we have appointed Steve Komphela as our new head coach. We welcome him and look forward to the remainder of the season.”
Komphela takes charge of a team currently sitting in 11th place on the Absa Premiership standings, on 16 points after 15 matches. After an impressive first half of the season with Celtic, Arrows will be hoping Komphela can get them into the top eight.
His first match in charge of Arrows will be against KZN rivals and his former side Maritzburg United at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on January 6.
