The Chilli Boys are without an assistant coach following the departure of Orlando Pirates legend Tebogo Moloi from the club’s technical team after only a month on the job.

“I would like to get an assistant coach position and learn, maybe in the NFD or PSL. If Dan Malesela calls me I would jump to it, if I can be a second assistant I would take it I just want to learn,” said Maleka.

Maleka coached ABC Motsepe League side Winners Park before deciding to take time off to complete his studies towards a Caf B licence.

“I want to complete my studies away from the media, then I will go look for an assistant coaching position where I can get the knowledge that I need to become a good coach in the PSL or NFD,” said Maleka.
