Sly back in the mix after Stars exit

Mosala will again serve under ex-University of Pretoria mentor Sammy Troughton, who took over the Sporting reins late last year from the departed Benson Mhlongo.

Mosala left Ea Lla Koto after the appointment of their new head coach Nikola Kavazovic in December.

"Yes, Mosala is our new assistant coach. He will work with our coach Sammy Troughton," said club spokesperson Mthobisi Thobela.

Mhlongo parted ways with Sporting due to alleged interference.

The Mpumalanga-based outfit, which was only formed in 2016 and gained promotion to the second tier last term, are sixth on the log with 22 points from 15 games.

Troughton's charges will host third-placed Mbombela United on Sunday.
