However, in an interview with SABC Sport, Komphela has clarified his contractual situation, shedding light on his tenure with both clubs.

The Three Plus One Contract Steve Komphela Has With Sundowns 

When Steve Komphela joined Moroka Swallows in July on a season-long contract, speculation arose that he was essentially borrowed by the club from Mamelodi Sundowns.

However, the outspoken coach revealed that his contract with Sundowns was initially set for three years, with an additional one-year option.

He is currently in the “plus one” phase, meaning that after this extension, he will be free to pursue other opportunities, dispelling the notion of being on loan.

A Mutual Understanding

Komphela’s transition from Sundowns to Swallows was marked by professionalism and mutual respect.

He noted that the cordial nature of his departure from Sundowns and the respectful manner in which both parties handled the situation led to misconceptions that he was temporarily loaned out.

The absence of animosity in the negotiations added to the perception that it was a loan arrangement.

A Smooth Transition

The decision to move from one club to another is often fraught with tension, but in Komphela’s case, the transition was notably smooth.

It appears that his impression that Sundowns’ head coach, Rhulani Mokwena, was keen to assemble his own technical team played a pivotal role in his departure.

Komphela’s availability coincided with Swallows’ need for a coach, creating a harmonious convergence of interests.
