Cape Town - Former striker Mabhuti Khenyeza has re-joined Absa Premiership side AmaZulu as a second assistant to Cavin Johnson, the club confirmed.
Khenyeza had previously departed the Durban-based club to join fellow Absa Premiership side Maritzburg United to join Muhsin Ertugral's technical team.
The duo oversaw a disastrous spell at the Team of Choice losing 5 consecutive games before getting the sack.
The 36-year-old who is the Absa Premiership's all-time leading scorer has now returned to his former side, where he was welcomed back by team manager Qedi Dlamini.
"We love him. We know his quality. We will accept him with open arms if he decides to come back. He is a very important individual. If he wants to come back, there’s no problem," Dlamini had previously said.
"At the moment, we haven’t discussed after his departure at Maritzburg because we were playing in Pretoria (on Tuesday). We are still here, and the management is also here. We haven’t spoken to him. Maybe we will speak to him later today or tomorrow.”
Dlamini added that they had their own plans to blood Khenyeza as a coach before he decided to take the Maritzburg job.
"We had our intentions about Khenyeza for next season, but unfortunately, the opportunity to go to coaching came early. He indicated his intentions and we gave him our blessings," he added.
"We wanted to develop him as a coach, like we are doing with Ayanda Dlamini, Belux Kasonga and Nhlanhla Zwane.
"He was going to fall into that category. We were willing to help him get his qualifications."
