Kgoloko Thobejane explains relationship with co-coach Milton Dlamini at Baroka


Bakgaga hired Dlamini in March to assist Thobejane after Jacob Sakala's brief ill-fated stint in charge of the relegation-threatened outfit.

"We help each other, we are both head coaches," Thobejane tells

"No one is above the other one, we are both head coaches. People might be confused but we are not. They can call him a head coach, but as long as they call me a head coach as well I will have no problem.

"We communicate, we work together. When he joined us I said to him, 'listen, I'm the one who is used to the TV things,' but the management prefers us to give each other a chance to do post-match interviews.

"I believe we must both do the interviews because we make the team decisions as a collective, and we work very well together."

Baroka remain in the drop zone with four games left following a 1-1 home draw with fellow strugglers Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.

However, Thobejane has faith his charges can stun champions Mamelodi Sundowns in their next clash in Tshwane on May 10.

"We coming to Pretoria, the Sundowns points will get us out of the suffering. I believe three points from the African champions are a blessing."

Meanwhile, the club's CEO Morgan Mammila expects midfielder Letladi Madubanya to recover in time for the clash with Downs. The new signing was forced off the park against Celtic following a heavy collision with Mpho Maruping.

"He will be fine next week," says Mammila.
