Former Platinum Stars and Orlando Pirates coach Owen Da Gama is expected to take over coaching duties from Mich D’Avray at struggling Bloemfontein Celtic when the players return to the camp after the Christmas break.

Da Gama arrived in Bloemfontein on Friday and will obviously be on the stands when Celtic cross swords with Free State Stars at Seisa Ramabodu Stadium on Sunday (15h30).

D’Avray has been struggling to find a winning combination since he was appointed the head coach of the Jimmy Augousti-owned side at the start of the season.

He and his troops have only managed to win a single game (against Santos) out of 13 matches and D’Avray may be fired after Sunday’s game.

The club’s management told D’Avray recently to win at least 2 of their last 3 matches before the Christmas recess, but he has already lost 2 games.

Phunya Sele Sele are rooted to the bottom of the Absa Premiership table after collecting a paltry eight points.

Asked by KickOff.com when Da Gama would start taking players through their paces, communications manager Petros Augousti, said: “Please speak to the team manager Khumbulani Konco about that.”

Neither Khumbulani nor club PRO Sello Nduna could be reached for comment.

Not surprised at all. This guy managed a supermarket for 10yrs and did not take any coaching course during that time. Football is changing everyday and a coach can not just keep up by watching Supersport/ESPN channels. Good bye Mich, your customers are waiting for you Down Under.
