The experienced coach is excited to take on his new challenge as a co-owner and partner at Santos. The partners have put in place a four-year plan to see the team back in the PSL and challenge for honours.

Santos issued a statement today, Monday, October 9, stating that Igesund and well-known businessman Bryn Ressell, have partnered up with Goolam Allie.

Igesund has now told the Siya crew that he is looking forward to his new role as a co-owner of a professional football club.

“For the last 30 years, I have been around the country coaching other people’s clubs, winning championships and being away from home. I am 60 years old now and I want to be in Cape Town, so when the opportunity arose for me to be one of the partners and co-owners at Santos, with Bryn Ressell and Goolam Allie, I jumped at it.

@Mr_Down, does he really need this Member? Running a football club is not easy these days, they are a lot of Challenges, Ntate Motaung can attest to this...

Don't tell me Igesund is 60, I was under the impression that the Coach is on the other side of 70, Herrr....stress is not good for anyone's health, I can see Prof Komphela is fast becoming old..
