Komphela wishes Magubane well


Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela has wished Siphelele Magubane after the winger left for AmaZulu.

Magubane recently joined cross town rivals Usuthu on a 3-year deal after falling down the packing order at Abafana Bes’thende and Komphela has shared some light on his situation which led to him leaving the club.

“Sometimes you need to do justice to the game, and allow players to go like Magubane who has just been released and I hope he gets game time and help AmaZulu, because the most important thing is wherever you are as a professional there must be a return on investment,” said Komphela.

“We wish him the very best but one thing with Magubane is with injuries and all that, then coming back with competition and all that and he felt like he needed to play when there was a long list of players waiting for an opportunity like Siphamandla Sabelo, Velemseni Ndwandwe and Siboniso Conco, so you have to be rational and allow a player to get more game time elsewhere.”

Magubane had gone over a year without making a single appearance for the club and eventually requested for his contract to be terminated at Arrows as he was seeking a fresh challenge elsewhere.

The 27-year-old Magubane featured more than 48 times for the KwaZulu Natal based outfit over the last 3 seasons before he left and joined Usuthu on a free transfer.
