Komphela left Chiefs after their 2-0 loss to Free State Stars in the semifinal of the Nedbank Cup last month.

The former Bafana Bafana defender says he is enjoying the break from coaching and is spending time with his family.

“I am resting and taking care of a number of private matters at the moment. When I finish handling those issues‚ I will definitely be back in football‚” Komphela told TimesLive.

“Over the past three seasons‚ I have dedicated all my time and energy to Chiefs and never really had time for myself and family.

“I have that time now which I am enjoying but I will come back to football,” commented Komphela.

Komphela has been linked with the vacant Bafana Bafana assistant job.
