Leopards Appoint Caretaker Coach

10 January 2013 The Touchline Expert

Black Leopards today announce that Assistant Coach Abel Makhubele has now been appointed as Care-taker Coach of the first team until the end of the current 2012-2013 season.

The club made this announcement via a brief statement released today, Wednesday 9 January 2013.

Makhubele has now been at the club for two seasons, and has proved to be a diligent, consistent and trustworthy team member – hence it was not a very difficult decision for management to appoint him to the position. Under his belt of experience he has coached Mbokoto FC who were an amateur team promoted to the Castle League from 1995-2003.

Provincially he has coached the USASSA U-23 team who played in the K-Motsepe Cup.
He has also coached the Limpopo Provincial U-17 and Metropolitan U-19 team who won the National trophy in Durban where he was voted the Best Coach of the tournament.

He has coached the Regional U-12 team in Limpopo, from there went on to coach Maindis FC who are a women’s team and in 2004-2006 managed the Limpopo Provincial women’s team.
Makhubele was a SAFA Coaching Instructor which eventually led him to join Black Leopards FC as Assistant Coach.

He has also in 2012 been handpicked by the South African Football Association (SAFA) to attend an Advanced Coaching course in Germany.
