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

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
