Swallows FC have snapped up Simo Dladla as their new assistant coach just days after he was sacked by GladAfrica Championship side Richards Bay.
Dladla earned widespread plaudits for his work in the South African second-tier as they led the table for ten weeks and looked poised to earn promotion to the DStv Premiership.
However, he was sacked this week after an indifferent run of form ended their hopes of automatic promotion going into the final day of the season.
The Dube Birds have acted swiftly to now secure the highly-rated tactician as an assistant to head coach Brandon Truter, who ironically also arrived after a stint at the same team.
"Swallows FC would like to welcome former Richards Bay head coach Simo Dladla into the Birds Nest," the club statement read on social media.
Dladla has signed a three-year contract with the Soweto-based outfit as they look to build on their impressive return to the top-flight.
