The former Amakhosi called time on his decorated career in the top flight of South African football to pursue a career in coaching.

'Ntofo-Ntofo' still holds the 18-year-old PSL record of scoring the most goals in a season with 25 strikes after clinching the Golden Boot award for the 2004/5 season. 

The Romans coach Kwanele Kopo has confirmed Mbesuma's new role with the team. 

"He is helping, especially with his experience. We are also trying to help develop his coaching career," Kopo tells KickOff

Pretoria Callies have made vast improvements in their performance this year after a poor start in the league this season.

The Romans climbed to ninth position in the standings after a goalless draw against TTM on Wednesday.
