Black Leopards have announced Abel Makhubele as the team’s caretaker coach until the end of the season. Makhubele takes over the Lidoda Duvha coaching duties, following Ian Palmer's exit.
Palmer, who recently accepted a coaching job at National First Division Santos, parted ways with Leopards after two months at the helm of the team.
“Black Leopards today announce that assistant coach Abel Makhubele has now been appointed as caretaker coach of the first team until the end of the current 2012-2013 season.
“The club made this announcement via a brief statement released today, Wednesday 9 January 2013. Makhubele has now been at the club for two seasons, and has proved to be a diligent, knowledgeable coach, who has a great working relationship with technical director Sunday Chidzambwa.
“He is familiar with the culture of the team and is great with the youngsters at the club,” Leopards confirmed on the club’s official website.
Makhubele is the third coach to take charge of the Limpopo-based outfit this season, following Chidzambwa and Palmer’s spells on the bench.
