“Orlando Pirates Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Fadlu Davids to the Technical Team. After going five months without filling the vacancy left by Benson Mhlongo the Club is pleased to have a coach of Davids’ calibre joining the organisation as Assistant Coach,” Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website. 

“The 37-year old is no stranger to the local scene having already served as Head Coach of Maritzburg United. He bolsters a technical team that already boasts two very knowledgeable individuals in Milutin Sredojević and Rhulani Mokwena,” confirmed the Soweto giants.
