Just after parting ways with coach Clinton Larsen this week, Golden Arrows have confirmed the appointment of Steve Komphela on Friday.

Abafana Bes'thende announced the former Bloemfontein Celtic coach's arrival on their social media platforms. 

The former Kaizer Chiefs has joined his second club since the start of the 2018/19 Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign as he takes over from Larsen at Arrows.

Komphela left Amakhosi in April this year before he was unveiled by the Bloemfontein Celtic at the start of the season.

He left Phunya Sele Sele two days ago after reportedly resigning due to the club's financial troubles. 

Having led Celtic to a bright start in the current campaign, the former Bafana Bafana skipper failed to win any of his last five official matches - a single draw and four defeats. 

On the other hand, Komphela will reunite with assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi whom he worked with at Maritzburg United a few seasons ago.

The outspoken manager will be tasked with taking Arrows back to the top with an aim to finish inside the top eight come end of the season.

Arrows currently sit 11th on the log table with 16 points from 15 games. They have three wins, seven losses, and five defeats thus far.
