Philani Kubheka – a winger for Pirates in the early 2000s – has been involved in the coaching of junior teams at the Soweto giants, since his retirement from playing professional football in 2015.

The 39-year-old is currently coaching Pirates’ team that is participating in the SAB League. The team is involved in the play-offs for promotion to the ABC Motsepe League.

Having already won two of their matches in the play-offs, Khubeka’s side is closing in on promotion to Mzansi’s third tier, as the team is at the top of their group.

@thabanakhosi in my little understanding the Team can be Promoted up to the NFD only,big Teams in Europe have b Division Teams that r playing in 3rd tiers but they cannot b promoted to the Premier Division even if they r Number 1 on the League table
