Allan Freese has taken up a new role at another club in the topflight, following the sale of Highlands Park.
Freese has served as an assistant coach to Owen da Gama at the Lions of the North since 2017, however, following the pending sale of the club to Tim Sukazi of TS Galaxy, the former Platinum Stars coach has been appointed at AmaZulu in a similar role.
AmaZulu recently appointed Ayanda Dlamini as their new head coach and handed him a three-year deal after saving the club from relegation, and have now brought in Freese as his assistant to form a strong a technical team as part of the attempts to avoid being in similar situation on the log next season.
“When it comes to the issue of the assistant coach we’ll be able to make an announcement in the next 48 hours or so. We’ve got quite a number of options that we are looking at. But one of the things that we’ve discussed with the head coach here (Dlamini) is that it’s critical that we get somebody with a lot of experience, especially in that role as assistant coach,” said AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela, speaking to the media in a virtual press briefing earlier in the week.
“Also somebody that, as I’m saying, shares the same values as we do as the club so that he can support the head coach well,” said Sokhela.
Apart from Dikwena, Freese was previously also the head coach of Royal Eagles and, had been the Head of Development at the Lions of the North at one stage.
