The Blue Army has endured a nightmare first half of the season that produced just two wins in 13 games and a league-high 19 goals conceded. The side has not won a match since a 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates at the start of September.

The 41-year-old, however, is optimistic and may draw from his previous experience with the club.

"I am really excited to be back here and having been here as a player , assistant coach and head coach, I understand the club quite well and will make it easy for my Technical Team and Players to hit the ground running," Davids told club.
