Free State ABC Motsepe League outfit, Dikgosi FC have confirmed the appointment of a former Kaizer Chiefs defender as their assistant coach.
The Fouriesburg-based club recently bought the status of Clever Boys FC, a club that also participated in the third-tier division.
With Dikgosi yet to kick off its 2023/24 campaign, they have reinforced their technical team with yet another experienced coach, who will work alongside the club’s head coach James Madidilane.
Dikgosi have secured the services of Mokete Tsotetsi. The former Amakhosi defender will serve as an assistant coach to Madidilane.

He left the club just a few weeks before the league commenced.
