“He is certainly joining the club. The club bosses want to beef up the management structure. Magesi wants to compete this season and don’t be surprised to see some quality players,” said the mole.

Magesi are in their second season in the Motsepe Foundation Championship following their promotion from the SAFA ABC Motsepe League. It is also their second time in the first division after spending just one season during 2016/17. They finished at position 12 last season under coach Clinton Larsen.

This publication has also gathered that Larsen is expected to stay for another season at the helm. He was given the mandate to save the status last season but the club has reportedly tasked him with the huge task of securing promotion next season.

Assistant coach Jacky Ledwaba is also expected to remain in the position alongside Larsen. Ledwaba was in charge when the club gained promotion but stepped aside when Larsen arrived.

The club has also kept some of the experienced players signed from last season. This includes Zimbabwean international Elvis Chipezeze and his former Baroka teammate Manuel Kambala.

The club is also expected to hold a media briefing in the next few days to unveil their plans.
