Cape Town - Polokwane City spokesperson Vusi Ntimane says the club hired Slovakian coach Jozef Vukusic because they have ambitions to compete for honours in 2018/19.

Vukusic's arrival means the end of the tenure of previous manager Bernard Molekwa who was in charge of Rise and Shine during the 2017/18 season.

The 53-year-old appears to have a impressive international pedigree as he was the coach of the Latvia U21 national team earlier in his career.

Nonetheless, Ntimane says he is confident Vukusic is the right man for City and can attain the ambitions the outfit from Limpopo are striving for.

"The club is serious about becoming a serious contender for the various cup trophies and solidifying a top eight finish in the coming seasons," he told Soccer Laduma website

"We have ambitions and therefore we needed to appoint the people with the expertise to get us there.

"We knew we needed a well-travelled coach to lead the team. Mr Vukusic is an experienced coach and has coached the U21 national team of Slovakia.

"Our new coach is also good with young players and this will fit in perfectly with building a successful MDC team."
