Steve Komphela’s Mandate as Moroka Swallows Coach Revealed
Chairman’s Expectations and Goals
Moroka Swallows chairman David Mogashoa has unveiled the mandate for the club’s newly appointed coach, Steve Komphela, emphasizing his patience and support for the mentor.
Komphela’s arrival at the Soweto-based club has already brought about significant changes both on and off the field, as Swallows aim to rebuild their status as a formidable force in the DStv Premiership.
Chairman’s Expectations for Club Performance
Chairman Mogashoa outlined his long-term expectations for the team under Komphela’s leadership.
He expressed his desire for the club to secure their position in the premier division, aiming for a finish no lower than 8th place in the league.
Mogashoa wants Swallows to solidify their status as a club that competes for trophies, rather than one that battles relegation.
With their first game against Mamelodi Sundowns, Mogashoa assured Komphela that there is no pressure on him.
Transfer Market and Team Evaluation
Despite the club’s signings of notable players such as Lantshene Phalane, Andile Jali, and Dumisani Zuma, Mogashoa expressed his dissatisfaction with the slow pace of the transfer market.
However, he acknowledged the team’s good performance in the previous season, highlighting the need to strengthen specific areas of the squad.
With Komphela now at the helm, he will re-evaluate the players and make decisions on who will remain part of the team.
Praise from Roger de Sa and Chairman’s Support
Former Swallows goalkeeper Roger de Sa praised Komphela’s bravery in taking on the coaching role, believing that his presence will make the league more competitive.
Chairman Mogashoa reiterated his role in supporting the coach and ensuring that he delivers results for the club and its supporters.
He emphasized the need for patience, given the quick appointment of Komphela on a season-long contract with an option to renew for a longer term.
Conclusion: As Komphela prepares for his first league match against his former club Golden Arrows, the chairman’s support and patience will be instrumental in fostering a successful tenure for the coach.
With a clear mandate and expectations set, Swallows aim to regain their position among the top contenders in South African football.
