Mozambican defender Edmilson Dove committed a professional foul against Moroka Swallows. The red card he subsequently received rules him out of Amakhosi’s clashes with Golden Arrows in midweek and Orlando Pirates at the weekend. The Glamour Boys host Arrows at FNB Stadium on Tuesday at 19:30 and then face Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby on Saturday 9 March. Kickoff there is at 15:30.

According to Soccer-Laduma, Kaizer Chiefs have identified Alexandre Gallo as a priority managerial target. The Brazilian is with Santos. He set the unenviable record of getting the club relegated for the first time in their 111-year history in December 2023. Santos has produced several stellar stars, notably the late Pelé, Neymar Jr and Ganso. They’re currently in the second tier of Brazilian football but contesting the Campeonato Paulista A1, a competition reserved for clubs from São Paulo. Santos is a true giant of South American football with eight Brazilian top-flight titles and three Copa Libertadores crowns to their illustrious name. It’s a strange sight seeing them in the obscurity of Serie A. The name of Pitso Mosimane has also been bandied about, because why not?
