The experienced coach is excited to take on his new challenge as a co-owner and partner at Santos. The partners have put in place a four-year plan to see the team back in the PSL and challenge for honours.
Santos issued a statement today, Monday, October 9, stating that Igesund and well-known businessman Bryn Ressell, have partnered up with Goolam Allie.
Igesund has now told the Siya crew that he is looking forward to his new role as a co-owner of a professional football club.
“For the last 30 years, I have been around the country coaching other people’s clubs, winning championships and being away from home. I am 60 years old now and I want to be in Cape Town, so when the opportunity arose for me to be one of the partners and co-owners at Santos, with Bryn Ressell and Goolam Allie, I jumped at it.
“Now I am able to realise a dream - to coach my own team. I am looking forward to this challenge,” said Igesund.
