Mamelodi Sundowns will be without a number of regular players when they face TS Galaxy on Wednesday night in the Carling Knockout Cup.

All of their Bafana Bafana representatives are set to arrive back in Johannesburg on Wednesday following the national team’s friendly against Ivory Coast in Abidjan on Tuesday night.

What this means is that seven of their players will only return to Johannesburg on Wednesday, the same day they’re due to face TS Galaxy at the Mbombela Stadium!

“Whether it’s as an assistant coach at a Premiership side or I can start as a head coach at a Motsepe Foundation side. I am well qualified to coach there.” Joseph Kamwendo told SoccerLaduma.

“I know and respect the requirements of coaching in South Africa. So I had to prepare myself first before saying I am ready for that.

“Now, I can say ‘I am ready’. I would be very happy if I can be given the chance at my former team Orlando Pirates but I wouldn’t mind coaching any other team.”
