Middendorp appointed at St George

Premiership

Former Kaizer Chiefs head coach Ernst Middendorp has landed a new job with Ethiopian Premier League giants Saint George Sports Club.

Middendorp and Chiefs parted ways at the end of last season after a memorable campaign ended in heartbreak on the final day of the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season as Mamelodi Sundowns pipped them to the title.

After a ninth-place finish, second spot was seen as progression for Amakhosi but the manner in which they capitulated, added to the availability of four-time league winner Gavin Hunt, prompted the Soweto giants to opt for a managerial change.

The German has not been short of suitors since departing Naturena with a host of clubs recently enquiring over his services but KickOff.com understands he's now agreed a three-year contract to join the 29-time league winners.

The former club of Milutin Sredojević and Denis Onyango will miss out on the 2020/21 CAF Champions League after the coronavirus pandemic forced last season to be declared null and void.
