- Steve Komphela is set to make a swift return to Bloemfontein Celtic’s home stadium on Sunday
- Komphela departed from Celtic a few weeks ago but faces them with his new side, Lamontville Golden Arrows
- Celtic supporters may boycott the game due to the turmoil within the club
Steve Komphela controversially parted ways with Bloemfontein Celtic a few weeks ago.
However, he’ll make a swift return to the Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday as his new side, Lamontville Golden Arrows, takes on the Free State outfit.
The Absa Premiership fixture will be Komphela’s second game in charge, following a 2-0 victory over Maritzburg United.
Komphela may well return to a hero’s welcome on Sunday due to his excellent relationship with the Celtic supporters.
The former coach moulded Celtic into a formidable unit despite numerous challenges.
The 51-year-old’s departure is well documented due to his leaked resignation where he cited various grievances.
Many of those were financial as players and staff went unpaid for long periods.
Briefly.co.za understands there is also the possibility of Komphela’s team playing in an empty stadium following numerous threats of boycott from the supporters.
