Komphela backs Gordon

2012-07-06 09:10

Johannesburg - Steve Komphela has given Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund his full backing and emphasised that he did not turn down the South African Football Association "in a sulk", reports the Sowetan.

Komphela said it was simply that his club, Free State Stars, needed a commitment.

Komphela, who lost the national coaching race to Igesund was poised to replace SAFA technical director Serame Letsoaka, whose contract expired last month.

Komphela spent the latter half of last season as an assistant to Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane, who has since been relieved of his duties.

He maintained his position at Stars while assisting Mosimane, however following Mosimane’s dismissal, he was seen as a front runner to take over at the helm of the South African national team.

    Steve it's a lot of bull and you know it. If you are so committed to FSS why did you take the BB job in the first place. Would you still have been as committed if you were given the BB coaching job instead of Gordon? I think not.
