TS Galaxy Football Club have announced former Highlands park coach Owen Da Gama as the new head coach with immediate effect.
Da Gama ironically replaces Dan Malesela who was roped in by Galaxy technically as his replacement after they bought the status of his former employer in Highlands Park.
The 59-year-old has signed a three year deal with the Rockets.
The Rockets are currently occupying the 13th position in the DSTV Premiership log with eight points after 10 games.
Galaxy President, Tim Sukazi says they decided to appoint Da Gama because he has a good understanding of the bulk of our current squad after having worked with them at Highlands Park.
“We are delighted in announcing Owen Da Gama as the Head Coach of TS Galaxy Football Club. Owen is a seasoned coach who has lots of experience in the local game. Most importantly, Owen has a good understanding of the bulk of our current squad after having worked with them at Highlands Park.” Sukazi said.
Sukazi believes that Da Gama’s experience and knowledge of the DSTV Premiership will valuable.
“As a club, we took the view that we would be best placed with a coach who has experience in the local game as the season is already on the run and there is no time to orientate a coach who has never coached in DSTV Premiership. Given where we are in the season, we wanted someone who will hit the ground running from the onset. The fact that coach Owen has worked with most of our current crop of players gave him a notch. Unfortunately there are not too many coaches out there who tick these two critical boxes.” Sukazi added.
Da Gama’s first game will be at home against Chippa United on Saturday.
