    Senior coach reporting to two join head coaches, a very confusing role. He is the boss in technical team or assistant to Manqoba and Rulani? Sundowns management should stop putting confusion in the head of people. Steve role and position in the team should be clarified to avoid leadership clashes with the other two coaches, especially with his huge experience as head coach compare to Manqoba, and especially Rulani, who does not have enough experience in coaching.

    Steve should be given a Head Coach position assisted by Manqoba as first assistance and Rhulani as his second assistance! There is no way that Steve can report to Rhulani! Rhulani still has a lot to learn from experienced coaches!I do not know how this structure is going work! Steve is too senior to both Manqoba and Rhulani by far!

    A teacher to report to his learners, please stop this no sense. Steve must be the head coach assisted by Manqoba and Rhulani, who should learn from him, full stop.

    Guys the job description of Steve is very simple, he’s a senior coach to head co-coaches this is same as an assistant coach.Another thing before he came he agreed to that description even though Rhulani is much younger than him but he’s under him.
    I always heard people saying Rhulani is young and new to the game but guys that boy is very knowledgeable of soccer check his qualifications even Pitso used to say I’m nothing to Rhulani in terms of qualifications, people are hating him now because he went to Pirates but he got those blessings from the President Motsepe same as Pitso to Al Ahly.Let Khompela assist those two before jumping to be head coach.

    Before he signed the contract of what he will do he thought about that thoroughly not that he was told about assisting both co-coaches when he entered Chloorkop,even when you read his comments you can see the man is overjoy to join a team of Champs.
    Pls let’s not create divisions to our lovely team like our rivals because they can see we will continue where we left off last season eintlik they are afraid of us even this season they thought by letting Pitso go Downs will be a disaster, Kby forever.

    Okay, let wait and see. My concern is about clashes of ego in the technical team leadership level, which can jeopardize the success of the club as they do not have same level of experience.

    Sundowns is confusing me more than its explaining this Steve’s role ,why did the president in the first place announce Mnqobq as a head coach an Rulani as assistant coach ,but this one buffles me more Steve Khompela reporting to Rulani makes no sense to me – I am sorry to say this but good acquisition to help Manqoba tame the tjatjaraj Rulani.

    Welcome Bra Steve to the winning family, with the basket of experience that you possess , sundowns can only achieve more , especially if the three of you work closely together in unity. That said i think the role of senior coach who reports to joint head coaches is confusing, perhaps the President need to unpack it a bit. Bra Steve and Manqoba are two seasoned coaches and in my view it would have been good to either give the job to Manqoba at once or give it to Bra Steve for him to take decisions knowing that his head is on block, now if things are not going okay who do you blame between Manqoba and Rulani, let alone that there is also Bra Steve. We like it or not a big team and a big brand like sundowns need one head coach who will take decisions and own them.
