One of Santos’ longest serving members of staff, David Notoane, has been given the role of assistant coach at the club.
Notoane has been with The People’s Team for a number of years, having served them both as a player and as a coach, and has now been chosen by new head coach, Ian Palmer, as his first assistant.
The coach did leave Santos for a brief spell with Golden Arrows, when he served under former head coach Muhsin Ertugral, however he has now returned to the Cape Town-based club and has been recalled to their first team.
With the news that Notoane has been promoted into the club’s senior ranks, the Siya crew have also been informed that Musa Otieno has been added to Palmer’s technical team as his second assistant.
Palmer will be keen to get Santos’ promotion push back on schedule, however will have a tough ask on his hands after their poor start to the season.
