The departure lounge at AmaZulu FC remains busy with the latest coaching member leaving.
AmaZulu FC have lost one of their most important coaching staff members to a West African giant.
Strength and conditioning coach Thepang ‘Chyna’ Mokhaila has left the DSTV Premiership side for Guinean giants.
EXISTS AMID USUTHU DSTV PREMIERSHIP STRUGGLES
This is happening barely three games into the 2023-2024 DStv Premiership season in which Usuthu are limping.
Mokhaila has confirmed that he has left his role as AmaZulu strength conditioning coach.
“My time at AmaZulu FC has come to an end,” the Gaborone-born coach wrote on his Facebook page.
“It really has been an awesome experience that came with a lot of growth as a coach and I will forever be grateful.”
Mokhaila was working under AmaZulu head coach Pablo Martin, a former Real Madrid assistant coach in the Spanish La Liga.
However, the man from Botswana said he opted to reunite with his former Usuthu mentor Romain Folz at Horoya AC.
MOKHAILA’S EXPLAINS HIS ROLE IN GUINEA
Mokhaila said he will be in charge of all fitness issues at Horoya.
“I have now Joined Horoya AC as their new head fitness and strength conditioning coach,” he said.
“I am looking forward to more growth and creating more memories with the Guinean giants.”
The French coach confirmed during the week that he had picked a new job with the 20-time Guinea Premier League champions.
MARUMO GALLANTS CONNECTION
There is a touch of Marumo Gallants connection in Mokhaila’s adventure in Guinea.
The fitness coach worked with the Frenchman Folz at Botswana Premier League side, Township Rollers FC.
The duo then linked up again at Gallants in the DStv Premiership.
This trend continued as two men reunited at AmaZulu where Folz was in charge before he was redeployed.
The Frenchman subsequently opted out of the Durban-based team.
The 33-year-old Folz has reportedly penned a three-year contract to replace Lappé Bangoura at Horoya.
CHANCE FOR EX-AMAZULU BOSS TO PROVE HIS WORTH
The former Usuthu boss did not succeed in the DStv Premiership. However, he now has a chance to prove his worth with Horoya.
The Guinea champions are competing on all fronts, including in the CAF Champions League.
Folz will be in charge when Horoya take on former Orlando Pirates star Khudakwashe Mahachi’s Medeama from Ghana in the Champions League second round next weekend.
