Former Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Shaun Bartlett has returned to where his football career began almost three decades ago.
Bartlett is back at Cape Town Spurs, now campaigning in the GladAfrica Championship, in a different capacity.
In a statement released on Monday, Spurs announced Bartlett as their new head coach, taking over from Dylan Deane who was sacked last week.
Bartlett’s appointment means he is going back to the team that gave him his biggest football break in 1992.
Bartlett spent three years at Spurs before moving abroad 1996 but he would be back at Ikamva albeit on a season-long loan deal from MetroStars, now known as New York Red Bulls.
And that was during the 1997-98 season, meaning Bartlett is back at Spurs after 23 years to try and bring back the old glory days.
Bartlett was most recently on the books of TS Galaxy as an assistant coach but he resigned after Owen Da Gama was fired from his post.
