Baroka FC head coach Thoka Matsimela is thrilled to be in charge of the team and is aiming to lead the club to a top-half finish this season.
Bakgaga have made an impressive start to their DStv Premiership campaign, beating Maritzburg United and Black Leopards before drawing against Golden Arrows, and Matsimela is eager to build on that and challenge for the top eight.
Meanwhile, Baroka have also confirmed Matsimela's backroom staff with Thomas Nare and Job Maphutha appointed as assistant coaches.
"Firstly, let me say thanks for this opportunity from my chairperson [Khurishi Mphahlele] in giving me the trust to lead the team as coach of Baroka FC," Matsimela told Bakgaga's media team.
"I'm very humbled by this opportunity and I will make sure I grab it with two hands. I think we have the mandate with the team.
"As you've seen, we've started very well – three games, seven points – that shows there is something we need to do. Firstly, the team must be in the top eight and I think it will then be the first time Baroka FC play in the top eight next season."
