Mokwena was relieved of his duties as head coach of the Buccaneers after a string of disappointing results and was subsequently replaced by German tactician Josef Zinnbauer.

The 34-year-old has now returned to his previous position at Pirates as assistant coach but Komphela believes Mokwena still has great potential.

"I still believe you don't just become bad because of results. [Mauricio] Pochettino does not become a bad coach because he left Tottenham," Komphela said as quoted by Far Post.

"Jose Mourinho had never been a bad coach just because he had been out of the job for a while. Listen come to South Africa the best coaches Gordon Igesund, Clive Barker - all of them have been out so it's the nature of the game.

"He [Mokwena] is such an intelligent man that you would want to see more in the game."

"If you watched his Orlando Pirates team play you could see what was happening and you would take interest in terms of oh goodness me they are doing this consistently and it's something very creative," Komphela added.

"I find him to be more of a very hard-working coach, very creative and very intelligent, there's nothing as more dangerous as an intelligent man who works hard and is very creative."
