Cape Town - Baroka Chief Executive Officer Morgan Mammila has revealed the club are targeting a coach with CAF Champions League experience to take the reins.

Former interim mentor MacDonald Makhubedu was let go at the end of the season after he had succeeded Kgoloko Thobejane, and the ambitious team are now aiming to recruit a new manager with experience at the highest level on the continent.

Former Township Rollers coach Nikola Kavazovic is reportedly on the shortlist having previously guiding the Botswana outfit to the group stages of the CCL.

Nonetheless, Mammila listed the criteria for who Bakgaga want to hire next. Speaking to Kickoff, he said: "Surely we'll get a coach because now we are focused on the CVs of the coaches.

"We've got CVs from all over, everywhere, and they are all big huh? It's one of those good CVs that you will be happy to grab each and every one.

"It's simple and straight forward; the coach must have had coached and have won a league in Africa, and played Champions League matches. Even if it's several matches it's fine.

"And the other requirement he must at least have been a national team coach. That's simple and that's the only two to pass. If you haven't done one of the two then you can't coach Baroka."
