DECORATED coach Katiso Mojakhomo was yesterday unveiled as the new Kick4Life head coach to replace Bob Mafoso who resigned on Sunday to rejoin Bantu.

Mojakhomo joins Kick4Life on a one-year contract.

Mojakhomo’s latest gig as a coach in the premier league was four years ago when he had a three-month stint with Bantu.

He has also coached the likes of Lioli and most his successful spell was with LCS with whom he won three league titles in 2000, 2003 and 2008.

Mojakhomo has also won the Vodacom Spectacular and the Top8 tournaments, both in 2008 with LCS. His side also finished as the runners-up in the Top4 tournament.

Announcing the new head coach, Kick4Life director of football Chris Bullock said Mojakhomo was a good replacement for Mafoso due to his experience.

“We have parted ways with Bob Mafoso who resigned on Sunday and today we unveil coach Katiso Mojakhomo as our new head coach,” Bullock said.

“We needed an experienced coach but also one who would work well with youngsters as our team is dominated by young players. Coach Mojakhomo’s record speaks for itself as he has had a very successful career.”

Bullock said Mojakhomo would start working with the team right away as there was no time before the commencement of the new season. He also said Mojakhomo would also have the licence to choose his assistant coach. Mafoso was assisted by Tšepo Hlojeng.

“He is starting right away and we are looking forward to working with him. We haven’t discussed the issue of the technical team but he (Mojakhomo) will be the one to decide on what he wants to do. We want him to work with people whom he would be comfortable with.

“Mojakhomo has come close to working with us in the past years and we are happy that it is finally happening today.”

Bullock said while they were not shocked that Mafoso had left, they were disappointed in the manner in which the deal was handled.

“I can’t really say we are shocked that he left us because such things happen in football. However, we are just disappointed to have lost him, there is no team that wants to lose a coach especially in that manner, but we wish him well,” Bullock said.

On his part, Mojakhomo welcomed the challenge and said he knows what is expected of him.

“I have worked with many teams of different sizes and have succeeded. In football, I know there are always expectations from both the management and the outsiders but it is also a fact that those expectations will always be met especially if the management is also playing its part. However, I welcome this challenge,” Mojakhomo said.

Mojakhomo said the reason he took the job was his philosophy doesn’t differ much with what Mafoso was doing with Kick4Life and he believes he will not struggle.

“Kick4Life structure is not different that much with LCS and also I have been watching Bob closely and the way he does things is not different from how I want things done. That is actually one of the reasons for which I took the job,” Mojakhomo said.
