Orlando Pirates have announced Fadlu Davids as a new addition to their technical team going forward in the 2018/19 season.
Davids has been unattached since parting ways with Maritzburg United and replaced by former Bucs and Ajax Cape Town coach Mushin Ertugral at the KwaZulu-Natal outfit in December.
“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.
Speaking on this appointment, Club Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza said: “I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Mr Davids to Orlando Pirates. What was gratifying when I introduced the coach to the Technical Team there was an instant cordiality and rapport between them. It is also quite exciting to have two emerging talents in Rhulani and Fadlu complementing each other.”
The Buccaneers confirmed that Davids will officially commence his duties from Tuesday, 15 January 2019.
