Stars are reported to be searching for new coach following the team’s poor results since the departure of Owen da Gama to Orlando Pirates this season.

Sources close to Stars have revealed that both Dumitru and Tovey have had discussion with the Tycoon’s management regarding the possibility of moving to North West soon to take over the coaching reigns.

Dumitri has confirmed to Kick Off that he has spoken to Platinum Stars but says it was not in connection with coaching the team but rather on an advisory capacity in certain matters involving football.

“I had discussion with the team's management some time ago, but it was a one-off thing that had nothing to do with coaching the team.

“They approached me at the time seeking advice on certain things involving football; we never discussed anything about me coaching the team.

Stars who finished second in the league last season are currently occupying position 12 in the Absa Premier League log with 10 points after 10 games.
