Two ex-Pirates coaches in Celtic's sights

Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic are reportedly closer to finding a permanent replacement for coach Serame Letsoaka with two former Orlando Pirates coaches seemingly high on their list.

Letsoaka was recently relieved of his duties after the club recorded four losses in their opening seven league games. In addition, Siwelele managed to score just three goals.

Nonetheless, it appears Roger de Sa is the leading candidate to take over on a permanent basis from caretaker coaches, Lehlohonolo Seema and John Maduka. With that said, former Bucs mentor Ruud Krol has also been linked with the club. 

De Sa, who guided Pirates to the CAF Champions League final in 2013 and won the MTN8 with Ajax in 2015, recently stepped down as coach of the Urban Warriors and is available.

The 52-year-old also lifted the Nedbank Cup during his time at Bidvest Wits earlier in his career. The former goalkeeper appears likely to be appointed to turn around Celtic's fortunes.

Meanwhile, Krol, who won the 'double-treble' during his last two seasons with Bucs, is also said to be a target although De Sa seems to be in pole position at this stage.  

The former Bafana Bafana international told Soccer Laduma, "The Celtic interest is about right. I am just enjoying my time off at the moment."
