Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela has declared his love and respect for Orlando Pirates assistant Rhulani Mokwena, who keeps growing in the coaching department.
On Sunday after their victory against Free State Stars at Princess Magogo Stadium, the former Chiefs coach spoke passionately about Rhulani, who recently posted a tweet appreciating him as a colleague and mentor.
Komphela said the way Mokwena respects him still gives him goosebumps and praised him for his growth in football.
"There are lot of good people in our football, Rhulani is one of them," Komphela said.
"He always humbles me for his support. As I was going through my Twitter feeds and seeing his tweets about me even now it gives me goosebumps. He is a reflection of patience when you speak about development.
"If you look at Mamelodi Sundowns they were patient with Pitso Mosimane and look at them now. Orlando Pirates have the same mentality, they understand the process of development and now they are reaping [the rewards] for their patience."
Komphela went back to remind us where it all began for Mokwena, during his time with Platinum Stars back in the 2008/09 season, and emphasised the importance of trusting processes in our football.
"I remember when I was with Platinum Stars, we worked together with Rhulani. He helped us in our youth structure, he was dedicated and always willing to learn, you could see there's something about this man," he added.
"If you believe in process you will see results. A visionary could see a seed and it becomes a forest, and Rhulani is a product of patience, a forest and a beast."
