New Free State Stars coach Serame Letsoaka says it feels good to come back home after 20 years.
The former Ea Lla Koto skipper comes back to the Bethelehem-based club to replace Giovanni Solinas who parted ways with the club on Tuesday night.
Speaking to the club's official website, the former Bloemfontein Celtic and Golden Arrows mentor said he comes back to share his knowledge.
“I am excited to come back home, this is the club where I started my career as a professional player,” said Letsoaka.
“I have been gone since 1995 when I hung up my boots and I left the team in 1996 and 20 years later I am back and it’s very exciting because this is the only club I played for as a professional.

“I am coming back home to plough back the knowledge that I have gathered whilst I was out there. It feels great to be given an opportunity by Bra Mike [Stars chairman Mike Mokoena] and his management to lead the team and I am up for the challenge.
“When it comes to winning the silverware I am in fact the last captain to lift the trophy for a major silverware for the team, and it will be nice again to lift it again this time as a coach.
“Most importantly is to get the team away from the relegation zone and to get stability in the team. We will build the team and make sure that we are the force we used to be.”
Stars are set to resume their 2016/17 Absa Premiership second round campaign against Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on Tuesday February, 07.
