Marumo Gallants Announce French Coach
Marumo Gallants have announced the appointment of Frenchman Sebastian Migne as their new head coach, replacing Dylan Kerr.
The club, formerly known as Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, confirmed Migne’s appointment as well as that of assistant Jean-Francois Losciuto on Thursday morning.
The club also confirmed that Mpho Maleka and David Mathebula are still part of the club’s structures, with Maleka remaining with the first team, while Mathebula will be the MDC head coach.
Migne is the former national team coach of Equatorial Guinea and Kenya, while Loscuito is no stranger to South Africa, having previously coached at Black Leopards and Richards Bay.
Gallants also confirmed Harris Chueu as the team’s new Technical Director, while announcing three new signings, 27-year-old former Bidvest Wits striker, Zaid Patel, who last played for Spanish club Loja CD F.C, Zimbabwean Learnmore Muyambo who played for Harare City FC and 26-year-old Jeroen Lombe Lumu from the Netherlands.
“It is an exciting time for us as a team to bring in such experienced individuals. We will be able to participate confidently in the PSL and the CAF Championship. I would also like to thank my technical management for working hard in the last few weeks to identify such good talent”, club chairman Abram Sello said in the statement.
About the appointment of Cheu, Sello said, “We believe through his guidance we will be in a position to achieve our goals. Last season was not an easy ride as we were amongst the teams fighting relegation, but we survived and also won the Nedbank Cup.”
