Michael Loftman, who joined the club earlier this year as an analyst, was seen on the Buccaneers bench as they beat bitter rivals, Kaizer Chiefs, 1-0 in the MDC on Sunday, with Lebohang Sepeng getting the winner.

Loftman who is a highly-qualified coach having already acquired his UEFA A Coaching Licence, and has plenty of experience having spent time with both Tottenham Hotspur as a development coach, and fellow English Premier League side, Watford, as a sports scientist, during his young career.

Now, having seemingly impressed during his time with Bucs, it looks as though he has been given an extra role to play in helping develop their youngsters, although there has been no official confirmation from the club about whether he has been given the role on a permanent basis.

The former Lusaka Dynamos head coach, praised his side’s attitude in their victory over Chiefs in his post-match interview, as can be seen below:
