“We are giving him a six month contract first; he has to convince us that he is the long term solution to our coaching problems. The six months will be used to gauge him as well as see what he has for our team, but we are optimistic.

“He has enough knowledge of African football, and we hope that will help him a great deal here,” Igaida told Goal.

The Argentine has coached South African side Mpumalanga, Sunshine Stars FC of Nigeria and Botswana's Gaborone United.
