‘Haters are reeling, be kind to them’ – Komphela to fans after Mamelodi Sundowns glory

The tactician – who lifted the first major career trophy – has called for measured celebrations after Masandawana lifted a fourth straight title

Mamelodi Sundowns senior coach Steve Komphela has urged the fans to celebrate their 11th Premier Soccer League title in a manner that takes into consideration their rivals who are hurting and reeling from their success.

The South African stated although they deserve to rejoice following another triumph in the league, doing so with humbleness is all that matters.

Komphela won his first career title despite trying to do so with eight PSL clubs before. He arrived to take charge at Maswandawana – with Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena – at the beginning of the season.

“At a position of privilege, be humble. In a position of underprivileged, silently focus on your dreams. Knowing pain helps you understand others’ pain. We rejoice but measured because others are reeling. We are thankful as Masandawana, the president, chair, the board and everyone involved,” said Komphela in a tweet.
