Polokwane City have confirmed Boebie Solomons’ appointment as the club’s new head coach, following Duncan Lechesa departure from the club last month.
Last week Friday, the Siya crew reported that the deal was 99% done, with finer details of the contract to be ironed out. Soccer-Laduma subsequently broke the news yesterday that the deal had been concluded.
This morning, the club confirmed the appointment on their official Twitter account, with club Chairman, Jimmy Mogaladi, unveiling Solomons as the new tactician.
The club’s official Twitter account stated, “Polokwane City FC has acquired the services of Abubakaar "Bobie" Solomons as head coach with effect from today, 21 October 2013.”
Solomons has signed a two-year deal and is expected to be in charge of the City bench when they face Wits on Wednesday in their league game at the Bidvest Stadium.
