Johnny Ferreira has resigned as Director of Football at GladAfrica Championship side .Sekhukhune United.

Ferreira had been the Head Coach of the club at the start of the season for the new PSL franchise, but last month he was replaced by MacDonald Makhubedu, the former Polokwane City coach.

“Mr Ferreira was appointed as head coach in August 2019 and did a sterling job until January 2021 where was promoted as a Director of Football position.”

“On behalf of everyone at the Club, the Executive Chairman, Mr Simon Malatji would like to thank Mr Ferreira for his work as Head Coach as well as a director of football and wish him every success in the future.”
