Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic boss Max Tshabalala has given his full backing to new coach Serame Letsoaka after joining the club on a three-year deal.

Letsoaka resigned from his position as Golden Arrows coach after only four months to join Siwelele.

The coaching seat at Celtic was left vacant when Clinton Larsen left last week amid disagreements with management.

Letsoaka made an impressive presentation during his interview at the club, which clinched the deal.

"We had other coaches that we were looking at [but] when we found out that a man of Serame's calibre is available we had to make a move. We are happy that we were able to conclude the deal," Tshabalala told The Sowetan.

"As Celtic we want quality. He has a lot of experience in the game and he has also been a coaching instructor. We need to support him as management and we know the supporters will also support him. He has not been given any mandate yet.

"He knows our supporters. When he made his presentation he spoke about our players like he knows them. We were very impressed. He knows the culture of Celtic because he has been here before as an assistant coach [from 1998 to 2000]."
