Cape Town - Lehlohonolo Seema says he is happy to learn from Steve Komphela after keeping his position as Bloemfontein Celtic assistant coach. 

Reports had suggested that Komphela would be bringing his own backroom staff to the club following his appointment as new Celtic coach to replace Veselin Jelusic. 

However, Seema has confirmed that he is still part of Phunya Sele Sele's technical team along with John Maduka while Simon Gopane remains the goalkeeper coach. 

The club also last week announced the signing of Ryan de Jongh from Platinum Stars to become Komphela's first signing at the club. 

"There are no changes really, I'm still here as part of the technical team along with Maduka and Gopane," Seema told Vodacom Soccer. 

"Stories that the new coach is coming with his own people is not there and it was never mentioned to us by our management. 

"We are grateful with this opportunity given to us by the club to continue learning from coach Komphela as young coaches. 

"Our pre-season has started very well and we are assessing the squad with our new coach to see where we need to reinforce it."
