The Phefeni Glamour Boys confirmed on Wednesday that Komphela had penned a three-year deal to succeed Stuart Baxter at Naturena.
Motaung understood that Chiefs’ gain was definitely a big blow to the Team of choice.
“Chincha Guluva” however thanked the KwaZulu-Natal outfit for allowing Komphela to move to Chiefs and also wished them well ahead of the 2015/16 season.
“Signing a coach like Steve (Komphela) is our gain and it’s obviously Maritzburg United’s loss,” said Motaung.
“So I do feel (for them) and understand how they feel right now.
“Going through this process is not a good thing because we have been going through the same path in the past few weeks when we lost our coach.
“But I want to say thank you to them (Maritzburg United) for allowing Steve Komphela to move forward.
“I do understand that they are in a very difficult position at the moment but I really want to wish them well for their future endeavours.”
