Burton Joins All Stars

Newly-promoted National First Division side, Cape Town All Stars, seems as though they could be employing two former Santos legends, Edries Burton and David Notoane.
 
Burton, who quit the Peoples Team on Wednesday has already been appointed as Stars’ new CEO, while it appears as Notoane might be in the process of jumping ship from Durban-based, Royal Eagles to become their assistant coach.
 
If he does depart, then the former striker would become the second technical team member after David Bright to leave Eagles under mysterious circumstances. Should that happen it wouldn’t be that surprising, especially in the light of his friendship with club owner, Lunga Ncwana.
 
“Burton is our new CEO,” Stars head coach, Dylan Deane told Soccer Laduma. “And the club seems interested in bringing Notoane on board as my assistant coach. We have no new players at the moment, are assessing a number of guys as the squad only started training on Wednesday and are going to be playing a few friendly games.”
 
Interestingly, if the deal goes through then Notoane will be assisting Deane, who was his assistant together with Musa Otieno at Santos, during the early stages of last season.
 
Furthermore, All Stars will be sharing Athlone Stadium with Goolam Allie’s club so each match might be a homecoming for the trio of Burton, Notoane and Deane.
 
“That’s football,” laughs Deane. 
 
Notoane didn’t want to go into too much detail except to say, “Everything depends on outstanding issues at Eagles.”
 
Eagles’ GM Richard Makhoba was unavailable for comment.
