Komphela has not been at the Birds training this year and reports have emerged suggesting that the former Sundowns assistant coach was denied entry at the club. But Komphela has dismissed those reports.

“I was not denied entry to the training venue because I didn’t even go there. I’m still waiting for communication from the office because after the games were cancelled in December, we were told that training should not resume until further notice,” said Komphela during an interview with Thabiso Mosia on Radio 2000.

“The season resumes next week. Maybe there will be a change and sanity will prevail and we will find a way forward. But right now, I’m just sitting back and watching this movie unfold.

“I don’t really want to talk about Swallows issues until we discuss them with the club. But I was called to Moroka Swallows to help. We were number four until we had these self-inflicted challenges. I don’t know what’s gonna happen next, because a lot has happened now,” he added.

“There are players that have been expelled and disciplinary hearings that I didn’t even know about. There were trials conducted, I didn’t know about them. Elasto Kapowezha is doing things that I don’t know about.

“But the supporters are calling for me to go back. But when I go back , how do I enter that terrain because a lot has been dismantled. A lot of preparation seems to be happening in my absence . How do I take the wheel of a car that I didn’t build?”
