Celtic confirm new coach and assistant


Bloemfontein Celtic have promoted John Maduka to head coach and moved Abraham Nteo to the position of assistant coach.

Celtic have elevated the former South Africa under-23 midfielder to the position of Maduka's number two from his previous role of MultiChoice Diski Challenge coach.

This after Lehlohonolo Seema resigned to replace Rhulani Mokwena as Chippa United's new head coach.

"John Maduka will remain the head coach, he has always been a co-coach in the club," Konco tells KickOff.com. "Abram Nteo will serve as his assistant coach."

Konco declined to discuss the departure of Seema and only wished him all the best in his future endeavours.

"I can't say anything my brother. We wish him all the best."
