Khumalo was roped in to help with coaching duties after MacDonald Makhubedu was suspended temporarily.

The Chiefs legend will return to serve as Baroka’s technical director next season.

“I was asked by the chairman and the CEO to help the situation because of the experience and all the things that they thought I have.

“Baroka is a team that gave me an opportunity to show people what I am capable of. If I was an individual who was unfair to them, I would have declined, but them showing hope and understanding, I said why I shouldn’t do it? I am all about the game.

“It was not a difficult decision to make because I have been talking with the club’s technical team throughout the season.”
