Steve Komphela has confirmed that he will join Mamelodi Sundowns after his sudden resignation at Golden Arrows on Sunday.

"I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Chairperson of Lamontville Golen Arrows, Mato Madlala and to Golden Arrows FC for their support and encouragement whilst I was the head coach," the statement read.

"Mato Madlala and Arrows contributed to my development and growth in football and I will forever be grateful to her and Golden Arrows.

"I have been given an exciting opportunity to join Mamelodi Sundowns as a senior coach to work with its joint head coaches Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena.

"I look forward to this exciting challenge and hope to contribute to the growth and success of Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa and on the African continent."

Mandla Ncikazi is expected to replace Komphela as head coach, with Mabhudi Khenyeza coming in as his assistant.

Sundowns recently announced that Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena have been appointed as co-coaches following the departure of Pitso Mosimane, who left the Brazilians to join Egyptian giants Al Ahly.
