FS Stars general manager Rantsi Mokoena had the following to say about their new man at the helm.
“I like what he did with Stellenbosch with what was an average squad and he has knowledge of the local scene."
"It is very dangerous these days to try and bring in a coach from outside who does not have any knowledge of the PSL.”
