Former Baroka FC assistant coach Fani Mthethwa will be joining Gallants as an additional assistant Coach.

“The restructure is aimed at strengthening Gallants’ technical team as Bahlabane ba Ntwa continues the journey in the Motsepe Foundation Championship League this season. The club has parted ways with former assistant Coach Rodney Moroka,” the club said in a statement.

“With a track record in excess of two decades, Polack’s successes include leading FC Inter Turku from the 3rd division to the Premier League in Finland and taking home various accolades during his coaching time in Ghana (including the Super Cup in 2019, the MTN FA Cup, Glo Top 8 and President Cup). His achievements also led to him being announced as MTN Coach of the Year in 2017. Polack also took Kenyan team Gor Mahia to league victory, and has contributed to the progress of other clubs in Africa.”


Polack says he wants the club and players to forget about what has happened in the past and focus on the future.

“The past is the past, I am not concerned with what has happened at the club prior to my arrival. My focus is on the future, and a fresh start for Gallants. I would like to thank the club Chairman Mr Abram Sello for this opportunity. I look forward to meeting and working with the team.”

Polack arrived in South Africa on Tuesday and will also be meeting with the technical team and players on Wednesday.
