The former Bafana Bafana striker was appointed on a two-and-a-half year deal alongside Middendorp in December 2018, but their joint efforts proved futile as they lost the Absa Premiership title this season.

The club have reached a settlement agreement with the 47-year-old, ruling him out of contention for promotion to the hot seat at the Soweto giants.
