AfricanFootball.com broke the story on Wednesday that Botswana national team coach Peter Butler will join Platinum Stars, and the club has since confirmed the appointment.

The English manager replaces Cavin Johnson who saw his contract not renewed by the Rustenburg-based outfit a few weeks ago.

In a swift response, Dikwena have appointed the former Zebras manager on a two-year deal.

According to Botswana media reports, Botswana Football Association announced that they have parted ways with the coach, a move which confirmed the switch to the former MTN8 Cup champions.


Butler's primary aim will be to help the club to reach the knockout stages of the CAF Confederation Cup as they will face CS Sfaxien in their Group B match at home on Tuesday, 20 June in Rustenburg.

Dikwena occupy the bottom of the group with one point from three matches having lost two and drawn one.
