Platinum Stars new assistant coach, Milton Dlamini has praised the club's facilities, saying it is a well-structured ahead of this year's Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup tournament in South Africa.

The Swaziland-born tactician joined Dikwena two weeks ago and led the side in their final CAF Confederation Cup Group B final match against Mbabane Swallows.

Dlamini replaced Willem Jackson, who has left the club after his contract was not renewed, thus allowing Dlamini to work with new coach Peter Butler.

“I have to settle down you know, I am experienced when it comes to football. I have been involved for 20 years now especially in youth structures,” said Dlamini.

“People know me and it was easy to receive a warm welcome and adjust here.

“This is a brilliant club, well structured with great facilities and I hope to add value here.”

The former Baroka FC coach will lead the club in their first semi-final of the 2017/18 Maize Cup on Saturday against Free State Stars at 10:00 (CAT).

In the second semi-final, Kaizer Chiefs will face Botswana Premier League giants Township Rollers at 12:00 (CAT) as they will battle for a spot in the final.

Hosted by the North West/Bokone Bophirima provincial government, the final of the one day tournament will be staged at 16:00 (CAT) at the James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney.
