Supersport United head coach Kaitano Tembo is set to enhance his football knowledge by doing an English Premiership League tour.
The Zimbabwean international will be visiting some of the top clubs that are campaigning in the EPL, starting from March 2020.
“We’ve had good coaches with big ambitions in the past. We had Pitso Mosimane who has achieved big in his career. That’s the same pride with Gavin Hunt. It is the same pride that we would love to have with Kaitano,” The club’s CEO Stanley Matthews confirmed the news to Independent Media.
“Next month in March, he is heading to UK. He will visit some of the major teams in the English Premier League,” Matthews elaborated.
Tembo is in his second season with Matsatsantsa as head coach after taking over the reins from Eric Tinkler two years ago.
During his stint in Pretoria, the 49-year-old mentor reached the MTN8 final but succumbed to a defeat at the expense of Cape Town City and eventually landed his maiden triumph as the head coach at the start of the season lifting the MTN8 by beating Highlands Park in the final.
“He will have one on one with their head coaches and background staff. He will observe their training sessions and inspect their training facilities,” Matthews added.
“When Pitso was here, we took him to Holland and Liverpool. We took Gavin Hunt to Australia in the sports of Institute. We also took him to Tottenham Hotspur. Kaitano will leave during the next Fifa break in March. We want him to pick of new trends and methods of morden football.” Matthews stated.
