Sekhukhune appoint their first coach

GladAfrica Championship

Sekhukhune United have started their preparations for next season after signing Johnny Ferreira as their new head coach.

Ferreira has been without a job for the past few months after parting ways with Uthongathi FC just before lockdown in March.

Sekhukhune are set to remain in Limpopo next season after buying the status of GladAfrica Championship club Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila.

United technical director Alex 'Barnes' Bapela has confirmed the appointment of Ferreira after the club receiving around a dozen applications for the position.

"There were about 13 applications and it was shortlisted to six. Remember, Ferreira was in position three with Uthongathi when he left the club," Bapela tells

"We were not going to get the Ajax Cape Town coach and the Swallows coach who are occupying position one and two on the log. We had to go for the number three.

"We are still to finalise the rest of the technical team."
