TS Galaxy hire ex-Wolfsburg star as new coach


TS Galaxy have announced the appointment of former VfL Wolfsburg goalkeeper Sead Ramović as their new head coach.

On Friday, TS Galaxy confirmed that German-Bosnian tactician Sead Ramović had been appointed as the club's new head coach after predecessor Owen Da Gama was relieved of his duties earlier this week.

The 42-year-old, who possesses a UEFA Pro License, joins the Rockets on a three-year deal and will assume his coaching duties once he has received his work permit, with Shaun Bartlett and Esau Mtsweni set to steer the ship in the interim.

"We are quite delighted to have secured the services of Mr. Sead Ramović as the Head Coach of TS Galaxy Football Club," club chairman Tim Sukazi said in an official announcement. 

"I’ve known Sead during his playing days which made his move a seamless transaction."

Ramović arrives in South Africa with a wealth of experience to his name from his playing days, during which he represented German sides Wolfsburg and Borussia Mönchengladbach and Norwegian outfits Tromsø and Lillestrøm, among others.

"I am very honoured to be afforded the opportunity to be the Head Coach of TS Galaxy FC which is an exciting young club with huge potential," he said said.
"I have fortunately known Mr. Sukazi for many years which made everything to be very easy. I am happy to work with coach Shaun who is a great legend and I have the greatest respect for him and the entire technical team of the club.
"This is a great challenge given the situation the club finds itself in but I have no doubt that there is enough talent in the group of players that will see things changing very soon."
