CAPE TOWN – It didn’t take too long - Steve Komphela is back in the PSL.
After being fired by Kaizer Chiefs, the former Bafana Bafana captain was announced as the new Bloemfontein Celtic boss on Wednesday.
The 50-year-old Komphela will take charge after Serbian mentor Veselin Jelusic resigned.
Celtic said on Wednesday that Komphela has signed a two-year contract, with an additional one-year option, and he will be keen to turn things around at the Free State outfit after they missed out on the top eight in the Premiership last season.
“Our strategy was to get a reputable local coach with immense pedigree who can take us to greater heights, and in Steve, we found an appropriate candidate,” Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala said.
“Last season was complicated and we failed to achieve our goals. However, we have now acquired the services of someone passionate, hungry for success and willing to bring the excitement synonymous with Celtic supporters.
