Changes are afoot at Mamelodi Sundowns with one legend now set for a senior coaching role at the Chloorkop outfit, the Siya crew has established.
It was reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma that David Notoane, who has been in charge of the Multichoice Diski Challenge team for some time now, has been earmarked for a position working with technical director, Jose Ramon Alexanko.
As a result, a man loved at the club and wore the Brazilians jersey with pride for twelve years – Surprise Moriri – is expected to replace Notoane as the reserve team coach.
The two former Bafana Bafana stars had been working together with the MDC outfit and Moriri was Notoane’s assistant.
It is believed there is a proposal on the table from Downs management for Notoane to work side by side with Alexanko, the Spaniard brought to the club in September last year as director of academy and scouting.
Notoane would be his right hand man and oversee the under-13 and 19 age groups at Sundowns, while also doubling up as head coach of the South African under-23 team, which he helped qualify for the Olympic Games.
The Siya crew made attempts to get comment from Sundowns to elaborate on the changes, but there has been no response from the club since Monday.
