I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Chairperson of Lamontville Golden Arrows, Mato Madlala and to Golden Arrows FC for their support and encouragement to me whilst I was Head Coach of Golden Arrows.
Mato Madlala and Golden Arrows contributed to my development and growth in football and I will forever be grateful to her and Golden Arrows.
I have been given an exciting opportunity to join Mamelodi Sundowns as Senior Coach and to work with its Joint Head Coaches, Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena.
I look forward to this exciting challenge and hope to contribute to the growth and success of Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa and on the African Continent.
