Former Highlanders and Warriors defender Noel Kaseke has been appointed assistant coach of a club in the United Arab Emirates.
The 37-year-old told The Chronicle that he concluded a deal to join First Division side Al Hamriya Sports Club which is based in Dubai. He is expected to jet out of the country tomorrow to begin his professional coaching stint.
“Al Hamriya Sports Club are in the First Division in Dubai gunning for promotion into the Premiership.
“A big challenge lies ahead of me, but I give God the glory because without him I know I would not have made this breakthrough.
“The journey begins as I transition into full-time coaching. I could not have asked for a better way to start than with coach Suliman, head coach of Al Hamriya,” Kaseke said.
Kaseke won three league championships with Bosso between 1999 and 2001 before moving to Europe and eventually to the UAE where he spent 16 years.
The former Zimbabwe international holds a number of coaching badges he attained while playing in Cyprus as well as in the UAE.
