Ex Bucs striker venture into coaching


Former Orlando Pirates striker, Reason Chiloane has officially retired from playing football to focus on his coaching career. 

Chiloane who also played for Garankuwa United has announced his retirement from football to take over a new coaching position with SAFA SAB League team, TUT Mbombela FC in Mpumalanga.

The former Bucs striker has joined TUT Mbombela at a time when the University has embarked on a journey not only to get promotion to the ABC Motsepe League but also develop talent in Mpumalanga after launching their development program recently.

Chiloane has confirmed his new adventure in football and revealed that he is ready to take football in Mpumalanga to greater heights.

"My ambitions with TUT Mbombela football team is to lay a good foundation and create a good structure, produce good players that will represent the province and institution in the Varsity football competition leading to PSL and the National Team,” Chiloane tells Kickoff.com 

"Regarding the transition that I made to become a coach, it's a good feeling because I am sharing my experience with the young players though I am also still learning a lot of things that Ì didn't manage to learn when I was still a player and also achieve more than what I did while I was still a player,” he added. 

TUT Mbombela Football Manager James Malele confirmed their new football development program in Mpumalanga. 

"We have just launched our football development project in Mbombela as part of our program of developing talent here in Mpumalanga. We currently cater for under 11’s, Under 13’s, Under 15's and Under 17's and our program runs from Monday to Thursday and Saturday at the campus,” said Malele.
