Gallants secure Chueu, 9 signings

Premiership

Marumo Gallants have confirmed the arrival of Harris Chueu as their new Technical Director with a host of new signings ahead of next season.

Last week, the club previously known as Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila announced five exits as well as their six incoming players for the 2021/22 season.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns duo Sibusiso Khumalo and Katlego Otladisa were among the new players unveiled, while the former DR Congo and Kenya boss Sebastian Migne has been appointed head coach on a two-year deal.

He will be supported by ex-Black Leopards head coach Jean-François Losciuto as an assistant coach alongside veteran Chueu who's previously worked with the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.

The French tactician landed the job after talks with Roger Palmgren, Pablo Franco Martin and Patrick de Wilde broke down and he replaces Dylan Kerr, who rejected a new contract offer due to their alleged attempts to lower his salary.

"It is an exciting time for us as a team to bring in such experienced individuals. We will be able to participate confidently in the PSL and the CAF Confederation Cup," Chairman of Marumo Gallants Abram Sello said.

"I would also like to thank my technical management for working hard in the last few weeks to identify such good talent."

On Chueu Sello added: "We believe through his guidance we will be in a position to achieve our goals. Last season was not an easy ride as we were amongst the teams fighting relegation, but we survived and also won the Nedbank Cup."

Gallants are set to compete in the CAF Confederation Cup in the upcoming season after winning the Nedbank Cup in their first-ever season in the South African top-flight.
