Celtic Undergo First Double Session Without Seema

It was back to business on Monday for Bloemfontein Celtic as the club resumed training, only this time without head coach Lehlohonolo Seema.

The Masotho coach switched his allegiance and the Mangaung club swiftly announced his departure before he was announced as Chippa United’s fourth coach this season.

It was a case of the show must go on for Celtic, who announced the appointment of long-serving Malawian John Maduka as the club’s head coach. He wasn’t the only one who received a surprise promotion, as Abram Nteo was appointed his assistant while Simon Kgopane is the club’s new goalkeeper coach.

 

With a Nedbank Cup semi-final berth and a fight to finish in the Absa Premiership top eight, Siwelele returned to training on Monday, having received the green light from the PSL.

Insiders told the Siya crew that in a bid to fast track their fitness, the club enjoyed a double session, although under strict precautionary measures. 

“It was a very intense first session, while it was toned down in the second session. All the players looked excited to be back and you could feel the vibe in the team even with the news that the coach had left. Players are used to John Maduka and his methods are similar to that of coach Seema, so it is not that big of an adjustment for the players,” a source informed the Siya crew.
