- Vaal University of Technology FC coach Stanley Nkoana made some cheeky remarks in respect of Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela
- Komphela took exception and feels that disrespectful behaviour is becoming commonplace
- The Arrows mentor explained why he is constantly being targeted
Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela is becoming increasingly disillusioned with the behaviour of some members of the local footballing fraternity.
According to Komphela, he is constantly being targeted and disrespectful comments are becoming commonplace.
Ahead of the Nedbank Cup clash with Vaal University of Technology over the weekend, Briefly.co.za reported that coach Stanley Nkoane recently took a jab at Komphela.
Nkoane understandably was adamant that Komphela and his team were beatable, but the Arrows mentor did not appreciate Nkoane poking fun at his command of the English language.
Nkoane said, "We meet on the field of play. Then we will see whether his English will win the game or the players will win the game."
KickOFF.com reported on Komphela's reaction in response: "It's sad. The 21st century has become awkward that our desire to claim fame literally throws the morals out of the window."
Komphela feels that disrespect has to be stamped out, but added that he has a lot of respect for Nkoane.
The growing sense of frustration became abundantly clear based on Komphela's proposed solution to the problem.
Komphela said, "It's normal to disrespect a black person, it's just right to disrespect black person. I wish I were white."
