David Vilakazi switches roles with Themba Sithole at Free State Stars


Vilakazi has been working in the club’s development and moves up to the first team in what reads as an exchange of roles with Sithole.

Serame Letsoaka – who is said to have made the recommendation for the changes – remains the head coach of Ea Lla Koto, who have a difficult trip to Cape Town City tonight.

Apparently Vilakazi and Letsoaka both hold teaching qualifications and have a history stretching back to their playing days with the club.

Sithole, a long-serving employee at Stars, has only been assistant in the first team since January having been brought up after the appointment of Letsoaka.

Stars are in genuine danger, sitting just a point above bottom club Highlands Park with four games remaining.
