Former Orlando Pirates captain Benson Mhlongo has a new coaching job, and it’s in the GladAfrica Championship!
In a statement released on Wednesday, Black Leopards announced Mhlongo as one of the new faces in the technical team.
Mhlongo, according to the statement, will work hand-in-hand with Floyd Mogale to try and turn things around.
And while the club didn’t specify the roles of the two coaches, Mogale is expected to lead the technical with Mhlongo as his assistant.
Leopards had been coached by club legends Morgan Shivhambu and Mongezi Bobe since the departure of Lehlohonolo Seema.
However, with Lidoda Duvha sitting 14th on the GladAfrica Championship log, the management saw the need to bringing in Mhlongo and Mogale.
Leopards Director Tshifhiwa Thidiela said the club is still in with a chance to fight for promotion hence the decision to reshuffle their technical team.
“Even though we feel that we are still with a great chance to fight for promotion. We, however, realised we are still lacking in the technical department,” said Thidiela in the statement.
“We just need to convert the chances that we create and then we will stand a great chance to compete. Floyd and Benson will add great value in the the team,” added the statement.
