Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces have confirmed that former Ajax Cape Town head coach Craig Rosslee has been appointed as Director of Football.

It’s been a busy few weeks for new club owner John Comitis after several announcements pertaining the once Mpumalanga club, who has since moved to Cape Town.

While Orlando Pirates announced Muhsin Ertugral as their head coach, Comitis was quick to lure Eric Tinkler to pen a deal as their new mentor.

Prior to Tinkler signing a deal, Ian Taylor was also roped in as an assistant coach with Calvin Marlin signing a fresh three-year deal with the club as their goalkeeper coach.

According to KickOff, Comitis confirmed that Rosslee will form part of the growing backroom staff that will be built in the Mother City ahead of the new Absa Premiership campaign.

"Yes, I can confirm that Craig Rosslee has joined us and will serve as Director of Football,” said Comitis.

After serving as the Urban Warriors coach, Rosslee went on to mentor Moroka Swallows as Well as AmaZulu.
