Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Doctor Khumalo confirmed
that he has accepted the position of Technical Director at Baroka FC.
The 50-year-old was unveiled at a press conference held in
Johannesburg ahead of the PSL campaign which kicks off this weekend.
“I received a call on August 15. Chairman Kaizer Motaung
called me for a meeting and I did not know what it was about,” said Khumalo as
quoted by KickOff website.
“His last words, after everything was said and done, that
‘it’s time for you to grow. But in everything you do, remember you are representing
me and the Kaizer Chiefs.'
“I hereby confirm that I have parted ways with Chiefs and
the chairman Mr Motaung has given me his blessing to grow my brand.
“I am ready to further contribute to South African football.
I wish to announce I will be taking a new role as technical director of Baroka
FC. I look forward to the new journey.”
Baroka will travel to the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium for a
clash against Polokwane City on Saturday.
Kick off is at 15:00.
