Willard Katsande has detailed the motives behind his decision to attain his coaching qualifications after calling time on a decorated playing career in the DStv Premiership.
Since calling time on his career after a season at Sekhukhune United, the Zimbabwean has been building his business profiles which includes a clothing line, interests in construction and backed by a thriving social media presence that he started during the decade he spent at Kaizer Chiefs where he earned legendary status.
He has now completed a CAF D licence conducted in Tshwane.
"I did my CAF D licence in order for me to set the path of my growth since I know what I want," Katsande tells KickOff.
