Celtic not looking for a coach... for now

Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic spokesperson Sello Nduna has outlined that the City of Roses-based outfit are in no rush to appoint a new coach as they intend to give current interim mentors, Lehlohonolo Seema and John Maduka, adequate time to prove themselves.

Phunya Sele Sele have been without a full-time head coach since the sacking of Serame Letsoaka late last year.

Nduna hinted that there is no specific time frame for the duo at the helm and should the club opt to look for a permanent mentor, they would go for a local one to avoid late adjustments of foreign coaches.

"Like we said before, at the moment we decided to give Seema and Maduka a chance to coach the team," Nduna told Sport24.

"And so far so good, they are doing very well with the team and we cannot fix what is not broken.

"We don’t have a specific time frame for them in charge but we are also not looking for a coach at the moment. However if we decide to search for a coach now, we’ll go for a local coach who is available.

"We wouldn’t go for a foreign coach at this stage of the season because it’ll take long for him to adjust and the season is left with less than four months.

"But like I said no rush to appoint a new coach now, the team is in good hands with Seema and Maduka."
