Komphela’s agent, Tim Sukazi, confirms that if Chiefs were looking for a perfect replacement for Baxter then the Maritzburg United coach is the right fit for the head coach role.

"To be honest, I have had no formal approach from Chiefs," Sukazi said as quoted by the Sunday Times.

"If I were Chiefs and I lost a coach of Baxter's calibre I would also look no further than Steve.

"If Baxter were to leave Chiefs I would expect that call."

It has been reported that if Komphela were to be given the job, the former Bafana Bafana captain would have to bring in his own assistant coach. Doctor Khumala is said to be interested in taking over from Baxter and does not see himself working under Komphela.
