“This change in our coaching staff is motivated by the need for new ideas, approach and focus. For this reason, we felt that coach Shaun will bring some freshness and innovative ideas and programmes to our total football programme,” explained Mulaudzi.

Bartlett will be assisted by Evangelos Vellios, while Tendai Tanyanyiwa will remain goalkeeper coach.
