Five Players We Want To See Turn To Coaching

It has been a while since a new breed of coaches has come to the fore in the Absa Premiership, with Fadlu Davids being the youngest coach in the league. But there are a host of players we would like to see on the bench one day – can you guess who they are?

On Thursday, John Paintsil was released of his duty as assistant coach at Kaizer Chiefs, and it remains to be seen where he will land up next season.

The Ghanaian has only one year's experience under his belt when it comes to coaching, but there are a few former local stars that should do well should they decide to pursue the coaching avenue.

Orlando Pirates legend Lucky Lekgwathi is one such player. The defender retired from the game last year, and he has been very quiet since then.

Many Bucs fans have voiced their desire to have him head up the club's bench one day, alongside his former teammate Siyabonga Sangweni.

Another player who could make a great coach is former Kaizer Chiefs and Ajax Cape Town defender Dominic Isaacs.

The former centre back was known for his professionalism and tough-tackling nature, and he would be a fantastic coach that would help develop youth into "old school" footballers.
