The 31-year-old tactician served as an assistant coach at Pyramids in Egypt among a host of other clubs across the African continent.

Another coach who has been linked to Gallants is Serbian mentor Nikola Kavazovic. The Serbian previously spent a spell at Township Rollers in Botswana where he guided the team to qualify for the CAF Champions League group stages for the first time in their history.

Kavazovic has also previously been linked to Kaizer Chiefs a few years ago.

According to a source close to Gallants, the club is expected to unveil their coach in the coming days with a foreign coach being its main candidate.

"The club is close to revealing their coach. He is a foreign coach but with experience in African football," said the source.

Marumo Gallants are set to part ways with Siphelele Ntshangase and Thabo Mnyamane among other players whose contracts are not going to be renewed by the team for next season.
