Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela admits making the move from Maritzburg has been challenging, but says he is settling in well at Naturena.
Komphela was brought in by Amakhosi at the end of last season to replace the outgoing Steve Baxter, after leading Maritzburg United to an impressive eighth-place finish.
The 48-year-old knew that making the step up to Chiefs was going to be a challenge and is delighted with how quickly he has adapted and the progress the team is showing.
"I am obviously settling in well at the club," he told Football411.
"I felt very warmly welcomed by the people around me and the surroundings from the first day I got here.
"As you'd expect from a giant like Chiefs, the treatment is exceptional.
"The difference having transited from Maritzburg to Chiefs is there but it is a challenge that comes with the job of coaching and it is a challenge that was always going to be there.
"So far, what we have accomplished in this short space of time is pleasing."
After a slow start to the season that sees them in a disappointing fifth place in the Absa Premiership currently, the Glamour Boys showed what they are capable of over the weekend by demolishing table-topping Platinum Stars 3-0 in the Telkom Knockout.
