“Doctor Irvin Khoza did contact me personally about Thapelo Xoki, and we’ve spoken.” Sandile Zungu told UkhoziFM.

“I respect him for the way he handled it so that Xoki will leave us, he played his last game yesterday and Gabadinho Mhango is joining us from Orlando Pirates.

“I can also confirm that Brandon Truter has been given a permanent contract as first-team coach at AmaZulu FC.

“He has impressed us since taking over following the departure of Benni McCarthy in March,”

Mhango happy to leave Bucs!

“We had a meeting recently and both parties agreed by mutual consent to part ways.” the Orlando Pirates striker said last month as quoted by Citizen.

“It is a huge relief to me because I was hardly enjoying game time.

“It has been a stressful season for me and I can’t wait to move on and hopefully this will be a new dawn for my career.

“I have been training hard. I have been outstanding during training, but surprisingly, the Orlando Pirates coaches have been ignoring me.

“And there is nothing I can do about it. It could be something personal, I really don’t know what was happening.”
