Black Leopards have announced the appointment of Abel Makhubele as the Premiership club's caretaker coach for the remainder of the season.
Makhubele served as Ian Palmer's assistant prior to the latter's departure last week following his initial suspension due to a fall-out with management.
An official statement released by Lidoda Duvha on Thursday reads as follows:
Makhubele has now been at the club for two seasons, and has proved to be a diligent, consistent and trustworthy team member - hence it was not a very difficult decision for management to appoint him to the position.
Under his belt of experience he has coached Mbokoto FC who were an amateur team promoted to the Castle League from 1995-2003.
Provincially he has coached the USASSA U-23 team who played in the K-Motsepe Cup.
He has also coached the Limpopo Provincial U-17 and Metropolitan U-19 team who won the National trophy in Durban where he was voted the Best Coach of the tournament.
He has coached the Regional U-12 team in Limpopo, from there went on to coach Maindis FC who are a women's team and in 2004-2006 managed the Limpopo Provincial women's team.
Makhubele was a SAFA Coaching Instructor which eventually led him to join Black Leopards FC as Assistant Coach.
He has also in 2012 been handpicked by the South African Football Association (SAFA) to attend an Advanced Coaching course in Germany.
We wish him and the team all the best in the second half of the season.
