Shaun Bartlett has been given the head coach job at GladAfrica Championship side Cape Town Spurs. Bartlett has been earning his stripes as a coach and has had stints at Kaizer Chiefs and most recently TS Galaxy as an assistant.

Formerly known as Ajax Cape Town, the club is currently 14th in the GladAfrica Championship league standings and have only won one game so far this season. Bartlett has some serious goals about succeeding at the club.
"The goal is to have success and that means fighting for every win and get promotion to the PSL. We know it will not be easy but possible with the hard work that will be put in," said Bartlett.
Matthew Booth speaks about the new and revamped Bafana Bafana
In other football news, Briefly News reported that Bafana Bafana are looking like a well-oiled machine and the country is loving their newfound form.
It seemed like all hope was lost for the national team a few months ago but a quick rebuild by Hugo Broos has lifted the spirits of many citizens.
Speaking exclusively to Briefly News, former Bafana Bafana player Matthew Booth details how he feels about the current performances and if the team can go any further in the competition.
"First of all, we need to give credit to Broos for picking a very young team. Every coach has a different opinion, football is very subjective so what I see is not necessarily going to be what he sees and I think as football fans and pundits, we need to accept that," said Booth.
