Former Kaizer Chiefs coach, Steve Komphela has joined Premier Soccer League side Bloemfontein Celtic as new manager.
Komphela signed a two-year deal with additional one-year option with the Mangaung-based outfit.
Tshabalala agrees though, that the new man at the helm will need time to rebuild a strong, competitive and exciting team that will be aligned with the culture of the team.
“Last season was complicated and we failed to achieve our goals however, we have now acquired the services of someone passionate, hungry for success and willing to bring the excitement synonymous with Celtic supporters.
“He has the judgment, Knowledge and experience. He promotes the youth and has an exceptional eye for raw talent and that is exactly what we need as a team.”
Aside from his successful spells with Stars‚ he also led unfancied Maritzburg United to a top eight place before leaving for Chiefs in 2015.
He has also coached Manning Rangers‚ Dynamos and Platinum Stars in the South African top-flight‚ as well as the South Africa Under-20‚ Under-23 and senior national side for two games as a caretaker in 2012.
Komphela is yet to win silverware in his coaching career though‚ which will be an immediate aim with Celtic this coming season.
