Madinda Ndlovu will return to Botswana to join Gaborone United at the end of June, with former head coach, Phillimon Makwengwe taking up the technical director's post.
Ndlovu is currently in charge of faltering Zimbabwean giants, Highlanders, but will leave the post to take up his new role at GU.
He has previously coached Township Rollers, Mochudi Centre Chiefs, Orapa United, Motlakase Power Dynamos and Nico United.
Ndlovu has always enjoyed success in Botswana, winning the league title with Chiefs and Rollers, while he led Orapa United to a Top 8 triumph.
GU director, Nicholas Zakhem confirmed that
"He has signed as head coach, due in the country before end of June," Zakhem said.
Ndlovu will reportedly earn $4,000 (about P43,000), making him one of the highest paid local coaches.
GU had fallen off the pace, way behind rivals, Rollers, and the engagement of Ndlovu is a statement of intent from the red side of Gaborone.
