Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic have shuffled their technical bench, bringing in a new assistant coach to Serame Letsoaka.

Phunya Sele Sele have made a slow start to the season, having claimed only one point from their opening three matches.

In a bid to improve fortunes, Letsoaka has asked that Morena Ramoreboli, who was the head of development while also in charge of the club's MultiChoice Diski Challenge team, become his new assistant.

Duncan Lechesa and Lehlohonolo Seema will step down from the first team technical bench in order to take charge of reserve side.

"We had a reflective meeting with coach Serame where he asked to work with Morena as his assistant and as a team we decided to give him the necessary support by agreeing and subsequently reassigning both Duncan Lechesa and Lehlohonolo Seema to work as co-coaches for our MDC team," Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco told the club's website.

"It is absolutely imperative to continue rotating coaches to gain experience within our structures because that will ultimately benefit both individuals and the team.

"We are in a fortunate position in that we have highly qualified and equally competent coaches who understand the importance of working collectively and understand youth development.

"If you look at some of the players promoted this season to the senior team, those players were natured by the same coaches (Lechesa and Seema) while still working with the MDC team. We are confident that they will unearth more players that will be promoted to the senior team," added Konco.
