The dramatic twists and turns in Dan Malesela's coaching career have continued yet again after making yet another expected switch on Tuesday to former employers Marumo Gallants.

Under two months since joining Royal AM who have flamboyant owners, Malesela has parted ways with the KwaZulu-Natal club in favour of a return to Marumo Gallants.

He had only left Marumo at the end of last season upon the expiry of his contract and cited several differences with the club hierarchy.

His time at Marumo had been fruitful guiding the club to safety after finding them in the mud while also pushing them into the Nedbank Cup final.

After spending some time without a job, he was then appointed as one of three co-coaches at Royal AM along with Khabo Zondo and Abram Nteo.

It is an arrangement that appears to have not worked with Malesela walking out from the club more than a week ago.

Marumo have now released a statement confirming the appointment of Malesela.
