The 57-year-old resigned as Royal AM co-coach earlier this week and returned to Babina Noko whom he parted ways with in June after they decided against renewing his contract.

Malesela says what drew him to Gallants is that many players he worked with during his first stint with the club are still there.

Asked to detail what was not working with the co-coaching, MaMkhize said: “He said to me he wants to grow his career and him being a co-coach, he didn’t see himself growing because if he is co-coaching, whatever that’s gonna happen to the club maybe is gonna be coming from everybody and he wanted to grow as a coach going forward.”
