The former Bafana Bafana striker works at Sports Plus Academy in Kempton Park where he trains young strikers.

“I don’t see myself coaching the whole team because I don’t think I’d be able to handle all the different personalities and egos,” Mphela told SundaySun.

“That’s a difficult thing to do. But if I can help with something, then I will.

“Maybe as a striker coach because I have the experience. I’ve missed chances in big games, so I already know what you have to do to score goals.

“Our strikers need guidance, coaches need to work with these guys more,” added Mphela.

“If they have to work twice a day, so be it. It’s their job, they get paid for it. Clearly, local guys need to push themselves harder,” concluded Mphela.
