Promotion-Winning Coach Wanted For New Club
Newly Formed Club Expected To Confirm Staff And Technical Team
The Siya crew has learnt that the promotion-winning coach, Roger Sikhakhane, has been identified for a coaching role at the newly formed Richards Bay FC.
After guiding Thanda to promotion from the NFD to the PSL, Sikhakhane has been left without a job, as Amabhubesi have since been sold to AmaZulu. A new club called Richards Bay FC has been formed to take the place of AmaZulu in the second tier of South African football.
Both AmaZulu and Richards Bay FC will be based in KwaZulu-Natal. Indications from sources in KZN is that Sikhakhane is earmarked for the role of head coach at Richards Bay.
“Roger Sikhakhane is wanted for a coaching role at Richards Bay FC. He has to make up his mind,” a source told the Siya crew.
Having parted ways with Royal Eagles at the end of the past season, Richard Makhoba is believed to be joining the club in a managerial role. Makhoba was the general manager at Eagles.
Makhoba and Sikhakhane are known to be close friends. Makhoba’s phone rang unanswered when the Siya crew called him for a comment.
