Former Kaizer Chiefs Defender Takes Charge Of Cape Outfit
As reported in edition 1029 of Soccer Laduma, which came out today (Wednesday), Cape Town All Stars have appointed David Kannemeyer as their new head coach for the upcoming 2017/18 season.
The former Kaizer Chiefs defender previously occupied the position of assistant coach in the technical team of the Mother City outfit. Kannemeyer replaces another former Chiefs defender, Patrick Mabedi, in the Igugu Lekapa head coaching role.
Mabedi has left the National First Division side to join Chiefs as Steve Komphela’s assistant for the new season. Kannemeyer will be assisted by Brandon Truter at All Stars. The club also signed Shavaan Rylands as the new goalkeeper coach. A reliable source close to Igugu Lekapa has also informed the Siya crew that club’s CEO, Lebo Ndebele, had parted ways with the team.
“These are some of All Stars’ technical team appointments. The new head coach was not prepared to work with Ndebele, so he’s gone,” said the source.
The club will continue using Parow Park as their home venue.
