Raja Casablanca assistant coach Fadlu Davids has confirmed his departure from the club amid Simba SC links.

According to reports, the former Orlando Pirates mentor is set to join Tanzanian giants Simba as their new head coach.

The Tanzanian side has been looking for a head coach since Abdelhak Benchikha left the outfit in April 2024.
