Polokwane City announce Jozef Vukusic as their head coach, sign seven new players

Molekwa's future had been up in the air since his team's failure to qualify for next season's MTN8 competition

Polokwane City have appointed Jozef Vukusic as their new head coach ahead of the new season. 

Vukusic replaces Bernard Molekwa, who had been in charge of the first team since the departure of Luc Eymael over a year ago. 

While Molekwa had a promising start to his coaching career, City's failure to finish in the top eight propelled the club to seek a new head coach. 

Rise and Shine took other social media platforms to announce the coaching change following the unveiling of Vukusic. 

Meanwhile, the club also annonced seven new players, including Mohamed Anas and Msekeli Mvalo among others. 

Anas was on the books of Free State Stars last season, and although Bidvest Wits were reported to be after his services, City moved swiftly to lure him from the Bethlehem-based outfit. 

Mvalo on the other hand, was released by PSL returnees Highlands Park a few weeks after their promotion from the National First Division.

Other new players include Lehlohonolo Nhlapo, Themba Chauke, Khayalethu Mjoli, Tebogo Kalake and Bongani Manavhela.       

This is certainly a statement of intent from Polokwane City as the Limpopo province now has three teams in the elite league. 

They would want to be stronger than both Baroka and returnees Black Leopards
