Orlando Pirates confirmed the appointment of former Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach Zipho Dlangalala to their coaching staff.

Having experience in youth development, Dlangalala is set to take charge of the team’s Multichoice-Diski-Challenge team.

“His experience in development coaching speaks for itself, having had a hand in the development of some of the country’s best young players who turned out for the national team as well as other professional clubs, namely Siyanda Xulu, Keagan Dolly and Mahlatse Makudubela,” read a statement on the club’s website.

“He guided ALS PUK Tawana during the 2010 Nedbank Cup, where they saw off Platinum Stars in the opening round, featuring a squad with the oldest player being 21, before succumbing to the Mighty Buccaneers at Orlando in the next stage of the competition.

“We are proud to welcome Zipho Dlangalala and wish him a successful tenure with the Club.”

The Buccaneers MDC team was previously headed by Augusto Palacios.
