- Siyabonga Nomvetha is reportedly set to join Benni McCarthy on AmaZulu's technical team
- Nomvethe, who is the PSL all-time goal scorer retired from football after scoring 123 goals in the PSL top flight
- Moneeb Josephs, a former Orlando Pirates player, will also be joining Benni McCarthy's technical team
Premier Soccer League's (PSL) all-time goal scorer Siyabonga Nomvethe is said to be heading back to his former team, AmaZulu. This time, Nomvethe who previously played striker for the team will be forming a part of the technical team.
Nomvethe, who turned 43-years-old earlier this month, retired from the field after scoring 123 goals in the PSL top flight - an all-time high in the Premier Soccer League. Nomvethe also represented SA in two world cups.
40-year-old Moneeb Josephs will also be joining the technical team alongside Bhele. Josephs who is a multi-talented goalkeeper, is the PSL's longest serving player, having been on the field for 23 years and counting.
Meanwhile, South African football fans have had this to say about the new appointments:
"A true legend, stayed true himself & never got caught up in all the hype that comes with his profession #bhele."
"#SiyabongaNomvethe #Bhele One of the best to ever do it."
"Our legend! Loved watching this guy play! If this guy had good PR, he'd be considered one of the best to ever grace the field! #Bhele."
"Much Respect to #Bhele."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that former South African soccer star Benni McCarthy has been unveiled as AmaZulu FC's new head coach. The 43-year-old has not been affiliated with any club for just over a year after he left Cape Town City.
AmaZulu's official Twitter account announced McCarthy's new position in a very excited manner. In the announcement tweet, the Durban club stated that McCarthy is "ready to drive the boys to Top 4 this season and beyond."
Fans seemed quite impressed with their guesses, as many already assumed that McCarthy would take over from Ayanda Dlamini who just recently stepped down.
