Speaking during the launch of the Shell Helix Cup on Monday, Motaung said the club received between 15 and 20 CVs for the job.

“There is a shortlist. We‘ve had a lot of coaches that have fished – there are about 15-20 coaches’ CVs that we’ve received, but we have shortlisted it. We are now on the verge of finalising the man that we feel will carry the club and take it forward. We have about six coaches remaining,” Motaung told the media.
