Fired Komphela back at Stars after King Leruo's intervention

By Ramatsiyi Moholoa | Jul 05, 2010 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

FORMER Bafana Bafana captain Steve Komphela will make a dramatic return to Platinum Stars as their coach, hardly a week after he was fired by Dinaledi.

Sowetan has learnt from inner sources that the imminent return of Komphela was facilitated by Bafokeng nation king Leruo Molotlegi, who was infuriated by Komphela's expulsion.

Dinaledi are owned by Royal Bafokeng Holdings, the company which is responsible for all the investments of the super-rich tribe. "King Leruo was taken aback when he heard in the media that Steve has been fired without talking to him on the matter," said our source close to Stars.

King Leruo will meet all stakeholders, including Komphela, in an urgent meeting in Phokeng today.

Stars chairperson George Khunou, who was said to be in Cape Town on business matters when Komphela was relieved off his duties, will also attend the gathering today.

Komphela, who is also working on SABC Sport as a 2010 Fifa World Cup analyst, said he was surprised about his dismissal by Stars as they did not inform him. He said he first heard about it on radio.

"Heads are going to roll because people who fired Steve are in trouble. King Leruo is adamant whoever fired Steve must have discussed the issue with him first," said the source.

"King Leruo is so angry that he has asked Steve not to entertain any offers for a job elsewhere. I can tell you Steve will be back in two days' time as the coach of Stars."
