The Soweto giants confirmed the news through the club's official Twitter account that the Italian had been cleared on Tuesday to take to the dugout ahead of the upcoming 2018/2019 season.

"We are happy that the coach has received his papers," football manager Bobby Motaung said.

"Solinas has been familiarising himself with the set-up and thanks to now having his work permit, he will have a chance to rally his troops from the bench, starting this weekend against Mamelodi Sundowns."

Amakhosi announced Solinas' appointment on July 13 on a two-year contract with an option for a one-year extension.
