Khenyeza, a former striker enjoys a good relationship with the Efstathiou family having previously worked together at Ajax Cape Town when still a player.

Besides serving as an assistant at clubs like AmaZulu FC, the former Kaizer Chiefs forward also worked as a head coach at TS Galaxy FC.

Malesela is being considered for his ability to develop young players.

"The club's office desk is full of CVs at the moment from local coaches and overseas coaches," a source reveals to KickOff.Com.

"So the job is in demand that's what I can say. Most of the South African coaches that are out of work, the club have their CVs.

"They must fit into the vision of the club and what it stands for, and be happy to work with youngsters when they need to, you know the club's philosophy.

"There are also one or two guys from Holland that know us, that want to come and live here in Cape Town and their demands are reasonable."

Spurs sit currently 15th on the log table with just 7 points from 8 matches played.
