Mxakaza, who plays Fezile on Isibaya soapie, joins the club as a physical trainer.

Eagles, who are chasing promotion to the Absa Premiership, are six points behind log leaders Stellenbosch with 13 league games left to play.

Eagles chairwoman Shawn Mpisane confirmed to SunSport that the actor was joining the club’s technical team.

“He is the physical trainer and he’s dealing with the core of the players,’’ Mpisane is quoted as saying.

“Fezile is very good at fitness training and the only reason we brought him here is to make sure that the core of our players are strong. I’m talking about resistance when the opponent are coming for them, and that is to build mainly their stomach and legs so that they cannot fall easily.”
