Steve Komphela's arrival at Bloemfontein Celtic has cast doubt on the future of assistant coaches Lehlohonolo Seema and John Maduka.
Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala today confirmed the appointment of the former Kaizer Chiefs coach as a replacement for Veselin Jelusic, who resigned from Siwelele last week.
"Yes, it's true, he [Komphela] is our new coach," says Tshabalala.
According to a source, Komphela will bring in his own assistant.
"Komphela is bringing his own assistant coach," says the informant.
"They are talking to a few people and another one is a former Bafana Bafana player."
Komphela quit his job at Chiefs with three games to go last season after a Nedbank Cup semi-final loss to Free State Stars condemned the Soweto giants to three years without silverware under his watch and triggered a fan riot at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Jelusic steered Phunya Sele Sele, which has been put on the market, to the Telkom Knockout final and an 11th-place finish in the league in his single season with the club.
