Mexican giants Guadalajara have provided an update on the club's new assistant coach Quinton Fortune after the former Bafana Bafana star was delayed in assuming his duties.

Fortune took the latest step in his coaching career earlier this month when he was appointed as an assistant coach to Veljko Paunovic at Mexican giants Club Deportivo Guadalajara, commonly known as Chivas.

The former Bafana Bafana and Manchester United midfielder was delayed in completing his move to North America due family reasons but has now teamed up with the club and met with the squad on the training ground on Monday.

"Fortune was received by all the elements of Guadalajara and, after meeting them, he immediately began his work in the rojiblanca squad," Guadalajara said in a statement.

The 45-year-old previously played alongside Paunovic at Atlético de Madrid in Spain and later served as his assistant at English Championship side Reading, while also holding roles with Manchester United's reserves and Cardiff City's U21s.

"Fortune will focus a lot on individual player improvement, which will directly impact collective performance," the statement continued. "In addition, the one born in South Africa will be in charge of designing and working on the plays in fixed tactics."
