FC Platinum (FCP) head coach Pieter de Jongh has finally been granted a work permit by Zimbabwe’s Immigration Department.
As such, De Jongh will be able to sit on the bench when the Champions take on Sudanese side Al Hilal in a Total Caf Champions League match at Barbourfields Stadium on Saturday.
The development was confirmed by FCP media officer Chido Chizondo on Tuesday. She said:
Yes, the coach has received his papers, they came through last week and that means he can now be on the bench in our next matches.
The Zvishavane-based club arrives in the City of Kings and Queens this Wednesday for its final preparations ahead of Saturday’s match.
FCP will then fly to Tunisia on Wednesday next week for their final Caf Champions League group match against Étoile du Sahel.
