Royal AM have announced the return of coach John Maduka following the team's defeat to Kaizer Chiefs last weekend.
  • Maduka is back at the KZN side after resigning last year
  • The retired midfielder was dismissed by Maritzburg

WHAT HAPPENED? The Malawian tactician has been jobless since he parted ways with Maritzburg United last November due to a poor run of results.
Maduka is back at Royal AM having resigned as the club's head coach at the end of last season having guided the team to a third place finish in the PSL and he joined Maritzburg.
Thwihli Thwahla issued the following statement on their official Instagram page on Thursday.


THE BIGGER PICTURE: Maduka has reunited with coach Abram Nteo having worked together at Bloemfontein Celtic and Royal.
It is unclear whether Nteo will be demoted to assistant coach following Maduka's return to the KwaZulu-Natal club.
Nteo has been in charge of the team since late last year with Khabo Zondo being appointed the club's head of academy.
