Kabelo Sibiya has had an impressive start in his new role as the head coach of Umvoti FC in KwaZulu-Natal’s ABC Motsepe League.
Sibiya, who is the former coach of Buya Msuthu, has joined the KZN outfit after leaving the North West side he has been with over recent years.
During his time with Buya Msuthu, Sibiya led the North West side to back-to-back league titles and also helped them to compete in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 match against Bloemfontein Celtic last year.
In his first match in charge of Umvoti FC last weekend, Sibiya led the team to qualification to this season’s Nedbank Cup with their 3-1 win against his former side Orbit College FC at the Petrus Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
Umvoti is the same KZN club that the late former Golden Arrows, Orlando Pirates and Maritzburg United player Bheka Phakathi coached before his tragic passing in a car accident in April this year at the age of 43.
