DURBAN - Cape Town All Stars are set to appoint Vladislav Heric as their head coach after failing to secure the services of Thami Ngubane.
All Stars parted ways with their previous coach, former Kaizer Chiefs defender David Kannemeyer, last week.
An anonymous source has confirmed to Independent Media that the National First Division club wanted to hire Ngubane as their new boss.
"All Stars have been in talks with Ngubane for the past two weeks. They wanted him to take over the reigns at the club but he turned them down. They then went for Heric," the source stated.
Ngubane is currently coaching Milford FC, an ABC Motsepe League side based in KwaZulu-Natal. The Richards Bay club is one of the favourite to clinch the top spots in KZN.
Ngubane has coached clubs like African Warriors, Thanda Royal Zulu and Royal Eagles.
Meanwhile Heric has been involved in Ajax youth structures. He has won promotion twice in his career before in South Africa.
He promoted Chippa United and Bay United, the club now known as the Polokwane City.
Independent Media's attempts to get hold of Heric proved futile as his phone rang unanswered.
