Premiership new boys TelOne will announce a new coach next week to replace Joel Luphahla.

Luphahla was forced to step down from his duties ahead of the new season since he does not have a Caf A licence to coach in the Premier Soccer League.

Club president, Lloyd Mutetwa, confirmed to the Chronicle that they will make a new appointment but will re-assign the former Warriors international to a position in the technical team.

“We are positive we will announce the new coach next week. But we have decided to retain Joel Luphahla in our technical team this PSL season and his new position will be announced once we assemble the whole technical team,” said Mutetwa.

Several high-ranking coaches have been linked with the side, including Lloyd Mutasa, Nelson Matongorere and former Warriors coach Clemens Westerhof.
