Former Orlando Pirates and Bafana winger Helman Mkhalele is set to be given the job as permanent head coach of Amajita, a source has revealed.
According to the source, Safa took time into appointing a new coach for the junior national team after the departure of Thabo Senong because they wanted to see how Mkhalele will do at the on-going Under-20 Cosafa Championship and they are impressed with what they have seen so far.
“The job already his, there is no doubt about that. The Cosafa Cup was just a test for him and they liked what he has done with the team. He assembled a good squad of young players and the association is happy with him,” said the source.
