Cape Town - Baroka
FC chairperson Khurishi Mphahlele has hinted that technical director Doctor

"We play with shape and we can defend now. We are very happy with
what he is doing and we would be glad to keep him for more seasons."
Khumalo has also been praised for helping the likes of Gift Motupa
and Talent Chawaphiwa to rediscover their best form in recent weeks.

"He (Makhubedu) has the rest of the season to prove that he can be a boss," the Bakgaga chief added.
"The CVs have been coming. They were coming even when Kgoloko was still here. That is not a problem for us.
"Makhubedu still has his job as an assistant, but if he is ready to
be the man in charge, then we will give him a chance to show us."
The Limpopo outfit have registered three victories and three draws since Makhubelu took charge of the first team.
