Former Highlanders coach, Pieter de Jongh has posted on Twitter revealing that he has been announced as FC Platinum coach.
The announcement comes after rumours had circulated for long on social media suggesting that he was joining the Castle Lager PSL Champions of 2019.
Speaking at his unveiling, the Dutchman said: “I feel happy to be here at FC Platinum. Everything here is professional both on and outside the pitch.”
When asked about his targets at the club, he said: “I’m looking for a long term success but we can’t get it today. It’s not easy but we will go for it.”
Lizwe Sweswe who has been taking charge of the team on an interim basis will retain his post as the assistant coach.
de Jongh will also work with goalkeepers’ coach Tembo Chuma who resigned at Highlanders just before the Dutchman started his tenure.
