Komphela heads for the Cape


Critics began to question Komphela’s dedication and loyalty to a struggling national Under-23 side last season when he was seen at the Rabbits’ training sessions.

Komphela denied any link to the club at the time and said he was there merely to give technical advice.

Now snl24.com/kickoff learns that Komphela is expected to join Western Province United, the First Division Coastal Stream club that Ndlovu has bought, as their head coach when he gets back from Ghana. There is no indication as to the future of Sonas Malope, who is currently coaching the Capetonians.

Last week snl24.com/kickoff reported that Komphela and Mamelodi Sundowns were involved in talks over his possible move to head the Brazilians’ Youth Academy. However, this now appears to have fallen through.

Meanwhile, after spending almost seven months in South Africa without kicking a ball since arriving, the Ugandan duo of Geofrey Sserunkuma and Hassan Wasswa will be finally see action when Western Province take on FC AK in the Nedbank Cup tournament this week.

Both Sserunkuma and Wasswa, who initially came in the country to join the Rabbits, were left clubless after Ndlovu sold the club to a Swedish consortium.

Speaking to snl24.com/kickoff Wasswa said they have been officially registered as WP United players after their clearance from their former team in Ethiopia, St George, arrived this week.

“We were due to play against Durban Stars last week Friday, but our clearance certificates were delayed. But we are happy that our registration papers have been completed and we can play again.”
