Orlando Pirates on Tuesday morning announced the appointment of Fadlu Davids as assistant coach to Milutin Sredojević.
Davids joins the Buccaneers' technical team a few weeks after he was sacked as head coach of Maritzburg United, following a poor run of results in the Absa Premiership. The Team of Choice currently sit bottom of the log standings.
He fills the void left by Benson Mhlongo five months ago and will serve as assistant alongside Rhulani Mokwena.
Club Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza had the following to say on the 37-year-old's arrival, as per the club's official website: “I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Mr Davids to Orlando Pirates.”
“What was gratifying when I introduced the coach to the Technical Team there was an instant cordiality and rapport between them.
“It is also quite exciting to have two emerging talents in Rhulani and Fadlu complementing each other.”
