Daniel Cardoso has become Sekhukhune United's latest acquisition as new coach Kaitano Tembo looks to strengthen a promising squad.

SABC Sport reported that an official appointment would be made in the coming days. Cardoso spent seven unsuccessful years at the Amakhosi, a stint that saw the club fail to win a single trophy.

He then courted shock and controversy during an interview with Robert Marawa on his show Marawa Sports Worldwide.

According to IOL, he said:

"The biggest downfall for the period I was there was the quality of signings. You bring in NFD players and free agents, they're passionate yes but some of them just want to earn a salary. You can see it on the field and some players just arrive to training under the influence of alcohol.
"I hope they can fix it, they have the finances and can be a great force of football again and I hope they end their seven year drought for trophies."

Moroka Swalows continue good transfers relationship with Kaizer Chiefs, acquiring Matsheke and Lesako on loan

Moroka Swallows will acquire the services of two Kaizer Chiefs players to help improve the squad's fortunes.

As reported on Sports Brief, the Dube Birds will welcome midfielder Darrel Matsheke and winger Lebohang Lesako from the Amakhosi.

The duo will stay with the club on a year-long basis with the hopes of gaining top-flight experience, while Swallows will be looking to reinvigorate a lacklustre squad that desperately needs a makeover.
