News reaching the Siya crew is that Leroy Maluka has been appointed head coach of Tampere United in Kakkonen, which is the third highest level of football in Finland. 

Following the Finnish club’s decision to part ways with Mikko Makela and Markus Halme, who have been the team’s coaches, Cape Town-born Maluka has been tasked with leading the side going forward.      

The former Ikapa Sporting midfielder, who has been on the books of four different clubs in Finland since leaving the Mother City in 2010, has been roped in as a player-coach for United.
