“I have a special relationship with coach Steve Komphela.” the Amakhosi interim head coach said as quoted by IDiskiTimes.

“Coach Steve, as you know, he was my coach. When I came to Kaizer Chiefs. He was the assistant coach to coach Muhsin Ertugral and before then actually I knew him as one of the leaders.

“As you know, he was one of my favourite Defenders. From that time he went into the national team.

“And when I was caught up in the national team with Carlos Queiroz, he was assistant to him at the time and we bonded very well. We became very close.

“It so happened that he joined the club (Kaizer Chiefs) and the chemistry was second to none, from that moment we shared a lot and we’re very close.

“The gap between the reserve team and first team was very close also.”
