Swallows Appoint Steve Komphela as Coach

Steve Komphela has been promoted to the position of head coach of Swallows FC.

On Sunday, 2 July, Swallows confirmed in a statement that it had appointed Komphela as its new coach ahead of the 2023/24 season. He will be assisted by Ditheko Mototo, as well as by his predecessor Musa Nyatama.

“We want to take Swallows FC to the next level and we are very excited to have attracted the services of [Komphela],” the statement reads.

“We appreciate the professional manner in which Mamelodi Sundowns FC managed these negotiations. Coach Musa Nyatama remains a special pillar of our team, and his willingness to learn and work closer with an experienced coach like Steve Khompela is highly appreciated.”

Komphela’s credentials are impressive: he formerly coached the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, Maritzburg United, Free State Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic. In 2012, he served as the caretaker coach of Bafana Bafana.

Prior to his appointment, the 56-year-old was working as a member of Mamelodi Sundowns’ technical team.

He is expected to begin his duties starting from tomorrow, Tuesday 4 July.
