Klate set for sensational return?


Six-time Premiership winner Daine Klate is in line for his first coaching role in the South African top-flight.

Klate, 36, retired from professional football in 2019 after a stint at Chippa United and ended his career with 14 titles to his name during his time with SuperSport United, Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits.

The former Bafana Bafana winger then moved into coaching and held the reigns as the MultChoice Diski head coach with the Chilli Boys for six months before parting ways in January 2020.

Over the last two years, he's been doing his UEFA Coaching Badges and assisting is grassroots level football but is now said to be in line for a move back to his former club.

KickOff.com understands that newly appointed Chippa manager Gavin Hunt wants the Gqeberha-born Klate to form part of his technical team as his assistant coach.

No agreement has been reached at this stage but Klate is believed to be Hunt's number one choice for the role as he looks to reunite with the PSL legend who he worked with at Matsatsansa and the Students during his glittering career.
