How does SA’s most stylish coach spend his millions: Komphela’s salary, cars & net worth

When you're a rich, Rent houses are replaced by Big Mansions and beautiful houses, Cars transportation are replaced with planes transportation in the skies, robber bands are replaced with Gold wrist watch and Gucci slides are substituted for the vibrantly colored garden slides.

Steve Komphela is a South African football manager and a former footballer and is currently a senior coach at Mamelodi Sundowns in the Premier Soccer League.

Komphela was born 1 July 1967 in Kroonstad, Free State. He is the youngest of 11 children.

Football career

Some individuals might not be aware that Komphela started out his career as a professional football player. He began his professional career with Klerksdorp City of the NSL Second Division, which is comparable to the GladAfrica Championship.

Komphela quickly gained a promotion to the National Soccer League as a result of his abilities. Before traveling abroad and joining the Turkish team Gaziantepspor in 1993, he played for a number of notable NSL teams, including Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars.

He spent three years with the team before leaving in 1997 and joining another Turkish side, anakkale Dardanelspor.

Coaching carer

In 2002, Komphela started his coaching career with Manning Rangers F.C. after leaving the field of play.

He coached a number of teams between 2002 and 2015, including the National under-23 squad, Free State Stars, Dynamos, and Maritzburg United.

In 2015, Komphela signed a three-year contract with Kaizer Chiefs, a decision that nearly destroyed his career.

He was forced to leave before the conclusion of his contract since he had failed to win any trophies since joining the Chiefs. This came about as a result of the frequent, violent protests against Kaizer Chief by his supporters.

On most Social Media platforms, a number of supporters were making disparaging remarks about him, primarily holding him responsible for Amakhosi's dry spell.

Following a 2-0 Nedbank Cup semifinal loss to Free State Stars, Kaizer Chiefs announced in April 2018 that Komphela has resigned with immediate effect as the club's head coach.

After a brief time with Bloemfontein Celtic and Golden Arrows, Komphela signed a five-year contract with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Salary and net worth

After beginning his professional playing career in the late 1980s, Komphela went on to become one of the most adored local football managers.

His estimated net worth is $4 million (R56 million), and according to many estimates, he makes between R400 000 and R600 000 per month at Sundowns.

How does he spends his million

The father of three has a passion for cars, especially fast cars, aside from football.

His favorite is this stunning Lamborghini Gallardo, which costs more than R2 million.

Late last year, Komphela acquired this lovely Heritage Softail edition to his collection.

The Softail was released in 2011 and initially sold for between R280 000 and R300 000.


Due in large part to his exquisite sense of style, Komphela has earned the title of "the most stylish" coach in the PSL.

Here are a few of his fashionable outfits:

Given that statistics are like a bikini, they never expose anything, it is understandable why Komphela is such a beloved figure in the local football community.

In local football, Coach Komphela is a well-liked figure for a variety of reasons. His example demonstrates the value of patience. He didn't do all of this overnight; rather, he began someplace and over time, rose to prominence.
