KickOff.com has learnt that Professor Ngubane has officially been appointed head coach of struggling Thanda Royal Zulu.
Ngubane will be assisted by head of youth development Paul Matthews after Roger Palmgren and his assistant, Ian Gorowa, were relieved of their duties by the club on Friday. Palmgren will, however, stay on as director of football, while Gorowa’s fate has yet to be determined. Thanda slipped into the relegation play-off place following a 2-0 defeat by Free State Stars on Wednesday and have just four games remaining to safe their season. Ngubane has vast experience of South African football, having coached Maritzburg United, Bush Bucks, Black Leopards, Nathi Lions and the Namibian national team, amongst others.
