Johannesburg - Following Mamelodi Sundowns' failure to win trophies last season, club president Patrice Motsepe is continuing with the process of restructuring the club's management by redeploying his personnel, according to a report on the Sowetanlive website.

Motsepe had a meeting with the management at the weekend, where it was announced that former Bafana Bafana coach Trott Moloto has been moved from the position of technical head to that of chief scout.

Former Sundowns captain and Under-23 national team assistant coach Mike "Nanana" Ntombela, who was the team manager before the weekend meeting, has since been given the position that was held by Moloto.

Another former skipper of the club, Mike Manzini, is expected to go back to his job of team manager. When Ntombela returned to the club last year, Manzini managed Sundowns' reserve team that campaigned in the Gauteng PSL on Monday League.
