Komphela departs from Dynamos 25/03/04
Former Bafana Bafana captain and Manning Rangers coach Steve Komphela has departed from his second Castle Premiership club this season after he left Dynamos under aggravating circumstances.

Despite this, he is still widely repected in soccer circles and is thought by many to be an excellent candiadate as assistant to new Bafana Bafana coach, Stuart Baxter.

Without wanting to refer to the incident that led to him leaving the team, Komphela did mention that the club have just increased the pressure on themselves.

Komphela was reprimanded by Dynamos boss Patrick Malabela when the former Kaizer Chiefs defender wanted to make a substitution that the manager did not agree with.

"With seven games to go they (Dynamos management) have decided I'm not good enough to lead their team," Komphela said. "It's not official yet but from my side I cannot work with or for people that do not want me around."

Komphela lead Dynamos to their only two victories this season while the team has drawn 14 of their 23 Castle Premiership games. "I believe to lead someone you have to love them, and that is what I've done.

The results may not show great progress, but I believe I was good for the team." Komphela has been overwhelmed from the public's response as well as the Dynamos players, who want him back at training.

"I don't want to boast about what I've done for the team, but the responses I've had from the players during my time at the club and especially after I've left has been amazing.

"Even the public in general have been good to me, but I want to say to them, don't feel sorry for me as I will be back. "Football is in me and I have to do something with the talents that I have, it has to be shared with others.

"There have been inquiries but I won't rush into anything, what I can tell you is that next time I work for a club I'll be sure to have a very good understanding with management."
