CAPE TOWN – A former FC Cape Town head coach in Jozef Vukusic has been unveiled as the new boss of Polokwane City.
The 53-year-old Vukusic, who hails from Slovakia, takes over from Bernard Molekwa, who guided Rise and Shine to 12th position in the Absa Premiership last season.
Vukusic was in charge of FC Cape Town from 2010 to 2012, but has since coached in Slovakia, Libya, Kazakhstan and even Latvia.
Now he will be out to turn things around at Polokwane City, who also announced a number of new signings on Wednesday.
Among them is Free State Stars striker Mohammed Anas, who played a key part in their Nedbank Cup triumph, but whose contract came to an end at Ea Lla Koto, where now-departed coach Veselin Jelusic has been replaced by former Kaizer Chiefs mentor Steve Komphela.
Anas could form a formidable strike-force with Polokwane stalwart Rodney Ramagalela, who was the joint Golden Boot winner with Mamelodi Sundowns star Percy Tau on 11 league goals last season.
The other signings announced by Polokwane City are Lehlohonolo Nhlapo, Themba Chauke, Khayalethu Mjoli, Tebogo Kalake, Bongani Manavhela and Msekeli Mvalo.
