Mugeyi to coach Cape club

JOHANNESBURG - Former Zimbabwe national team striker and South African player of the year Wilfred Mugeyi, who hung up his playing boots recently, has been appointed assistant coach at ambitious Cape Town club, Ajax Cape Town.
Silver Fox, as Mugeyi was known in his heyday, succeeds countryman

Ian Gorowa who left the post last month to assume coaching at Moroka Swallows.
A spokesperson at the club, where Mugeyi also had a stint, said Mugeyi’s experience had put him in good stead to lead the team alongside head coach Craig Rosslee.
“Wilfred needs no introduction as he played professional football in South Africa for a number of years with Bush Bucks, Free State Stars and Ajax Cape Town,” said the club in a statement.
Mugeyi was until the time of his appointment a player/coach at relegated first division club Western Province United.
Mugeyi is one of South African football’s finest imports. He had a glittering career with Bucks, Stars and Ajax and is one-time Player of the Year as well as finishing the top goal scorer on two occasions.
His career has also taken him to Israel. He was part of the trailblazing Black Aces of the 1990s, culminating in him winning the 1992 Zimbabwe Player of the Year.
“It is our belief that we not only develop players, but also develop technical staff able to take football in South Africa to the next level ahead of 2010,” added the club on his appointment.
Ajax Cape Town finished a credible fourth in the just-ended Castle Premiership season and hopes are high among fans that the new technical team will maintain those standards. -CAJ News
