The Most Experienced Foreign Coaches In SA

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 06, 2017 12:26 PM

Today we take a look at the PSL’s most experienced foreigners to have sat in the dugout for their various teams in the last 10 seasons.

Confirmed: Chiefs Announce Fourth Signing

With more and more foreign coaches, such as Luc Eymael and Veselin Jelusic, coming in to take over PSL teams, there are a number of foreign imports that they would like to emulate some of the experienced stalwarts to have graced the league in recent history, with a number of coaches leaving their legacies on their respective teams over the years.

The most experienced foreign coach in the league since 2006 comes in the form of Ernst Middendorp (German), who has amassed 205 appearances in the dugout while in charge of six PSL clubs including the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United.

In second place is former Orlando Pirates coach, Muhsin Ertugral (Turkish) who was also in charge of Kaizer Chiefs, Ajax Cape Town, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Golden Arrows during various spells in Mzansi. Ertugral made 168 appearances on the bench over the course of nine appearances and has made just 33 more appearances than current Bafana Bafana coach, Stuart Baxter (English), who has sat in the dugout for 135 games while in charge of Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United.

Maritzburg Land Xulu After Chiefs Exit

The next two spots belong to yet another former Kaizer Chiefs mentor, Vladimir Vermezovic (Serbian), who oversaw 112 games during his tenure with Amakhosi as well as their Soweto rivals, Orlando Pirates. Rounding off the top five is Swedish coach Roger Palmgren, who was in charge of AmaZulu and Thanda Royal Zulu for a combined 91 games.

Other notable coaches that fall into the top 10 are Ruud Krol, Julio Cesar Leal and Kosta Papic.

Who do you think is the best foreign coach in the PSL since 2006?
