Good luck To Ex-Kaizer Chiefs Coach As He Bags A New Big Job

Being a coach in any sport in the world is not an easy job because if the results don't work out, it's your own fault. The world of football is more difficult because you are always the first to be seen when something goes wrong.

What former Kaizer Chiefs player and head coach Steve Hompela well understands: The 54-year-old, who played for Amakhosi in 1993, started his coaching career in 2002 with the now-defunct Manning Rangers.

So far he has managed to coach at least ten Premier League (PSL) with the exception of the boss and the South African national team under 20 and adults. In his 20th year as a professional coach, he won only two trophies (MTN8 and Dstv Premiership League Championship), both with his current team, Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club.

Despite his recent success with the Brazilian team, the tactical master has had some issues with the club he has led in the past, with Phefini Glamor Boys at the forefront.

During his three-year tenure with the Chiefs from 2015 to 2018, he was forced to step down as the club's head coach after fans stormed the Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban shooting him in the head.

After redeeming himself at Lamontville Golden Arrows Football Club, Sundowns came for him and was a success.

His success with the club led him to a deal with Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).


I think the Chiefs made a mistake when they let him go when he left because he had an important task to rebuild the team and he did. We congratulate Mr Homela on your recent success and wish you more for the future.
