Jacob Sakala officially starts Baroka FC head coach job, ending Thobejane era

Posted: 11 January 2017 Time: 20:48

New coach Jacob ‘Cellular’ Sakala started his duties at Baroka FC today, offically bringing an end to the Kgoloko Thobejane era.

Thobejane is an audience favourite in the PSL thanks to some memorable comments on television, most notably his famous “this football can kill you” one-liner.

He has since been moved to assistant coach following a first half of the season that saw Bakgaga finish bottom of the league with just 12 points.

Sakala spent the whole of his first training session focusing only on players’ fitness.

“Yes the new coach started today,” a source within the camp tells

“He [Sakala] is the one handling our training sessions. Today he concentrated more on fitness, that’s all we did, fitness training. All the coaches are here, even coach Kgoloko is here with the team as well, assisting.”

Baroka have been the busiest team in the transfer market so far and have already signed seven new players, with Botswana international Mpho Kgaswane the next to come in.
