Micho says Davids was hired because of his talent and was the right man to fill Mhlongo’s void in his technical team.

Davids was fired by Maritzburg United after leading the club to a top eight finish last season, however he had a poor start to the current campaign, which led to his sacking.

“For some time, since Benson left for TS Sporting, we had a gap in our second assistant position, and the club took the chance to bring in Fadlu Davids,” Sredojevic was quoted as saying by Sport24.

“We have welcomed him in an organised environment, where he is coming at a time when we are in very good shape to add and contribute from his own aspect as a second assistant. I believe there is huge space for whatever we do, because we are never happy and satisfied, we want more. We believe he will give his full contribution, and this is what I can say.”
