“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.”
The former Kaizer Chiefs mentor further added that he was grateful towards Arrows chairperson Mato Madlala.
Komphela had joined the KwaZulu-Natal side in December 2018.
“I would like to express my deep gratitude to the chairperson of Lamontville Golden Arrows, Mato Madlala and to Golden Arrows FC for their support and encouragement to me whilst I was head coach of Golden Arrows,” Komphela said.
“Mato Madlala and Golden Arrows contributed to my development and growth in football and I will forever be grateful to her and Golden Arrows.”
