South Africa: SAFA explains Komphela’s Bafana role
According to SAFA, the coach’s main duty is that of a part time assistant coach to recommend local-based players for selection.
“He [Komphela] is not a temporary coach, but a part-time coach for the national team,” Safa’s Director of Communications Dominic Chimhavi told KickOff.com.
“He has a contract running until 2014. The agreement is that he will assist Pitso Mosimane while also attending to his duties at Free State Stars.
“As a coach in the Premier League, he is well placed to monitor local players. His duties with Free State Stars cannot therefore affect his input within the national team.”
