Former Bafana Bafana defender Morgan Gould is set to start his coaching career with Sekhukhune United in their upcoming DStv Diski Challenge campaign.
Gould, 38, retired from professional football at the end of last season as United won the GladAfrica Championship and earned promotion to the DStv Premiership.
His career in South African football spanned over two decades and will most fondly be remembered for his time with SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs where he emerged as one of the nation's most fearsome defenders.
The 2010 PSL Footballer of the Season is now set to be confirmed as the assistant coach of the Sekhukhune reserve team on Thursday which has long been in the pipeline.
"He is one for the future and we must make sure that we support him to achieve his dreams as a coach," Babina Noko boss Jonas Malatji told KickOff.com in June.
Gould won four South African top-flight league titles during his glittering career along with 30 caps for the national team.
