8. Steve Komphela – Salary: R500,000 – R600,000
Steven Mbuyi Komphela is currently the Senior Coach at Mamelodi Sundowns F.C., where he works alongside two other coaches – Rhulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi. His salary ranges between R500,000 – R600,000 and places him at the 8th spot on the list. He has also managed top South Africa PSL clubs, including Maritzburg United (two stints), Free State Stars (two stints), Kaizer Chiefs, Golden Arrows, among others. His stint at Kaizer Chiefs (2015–2018) was the longest he had stayed in any club since he began coaching, but he left unceremoniously following his inability to win a trophy.
It was a big dent in his profile, but he somehow re-jigged his career at Bloemfontein Celtic F.C. in 2018. He moved again to Golden Arrows in 2019 before signing for Mamelodi Sundowns F.C. in October 2020.
