Another ex-professional players who attended the course is former AmaZulu and Siwelele midfielder John Arwuah.

Speaking in an interview with KickOff.com from Ermelo, where Mjembu is now based with his new team, he says his dream is coaching in the PSL.

"I have moved now to Ermelo where I am coaching Bayern FC. I have been coaching in the ABC Motsepe League for some few years now to equip myself with experience whilst also studying," Mjempu reveals.

"There is no shortcut in football when you want to be a great coach and hence I allowed myself to go through all the development stages."

"My dream is coach in the PSL and I am confident that dream will come true one day. For now I just want to concentrate on my team and help them secure the dream of playing in the GladAfrica Championship soon."
