Tebogo Motlanthe Appointed CEO of Kruger United, Rising Stars in Motsepe Foundation Championship in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga

Tebogo Motlanthe, former SAFA CEO, has embarked on a new journey as the CEO of Kruger United, the latest entrants into the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

This follows Kruger’s recent promotion to South Africa’s second-tier league after an impressive showing at the ABC Motsepe League National Playoffs in Upington, Northern Cape.

Based in Bushbuckridge, Kruger United clinched their promotion as runners-up in the national playoffs, falling short to Highbury FC from Eastern Cape with a 2-0 defeat under coach Kabelo Sibiya.

Remarkably, the club, formed just 10 months ago, has quickly become a beacon of hope for young footballers in Mpumalanga, reigniting local passion for the sport.

Ambitious Goals and Determination

Kruger United’s leadership has emphasized their intent not merely to participate in the Motsepe Foundation Championship but to vie fiercely for a spot in the prestigious DStv Premiership, bolstered by their faith and determination.

Dispelling Rumors

Recent speculation about Tebogo Motlanthe’s potential return to SAFA gained traction during his presence at the national playoffs.

However, SAFA President Dr. Danny Jordaan clarified that Motlanthe was assisting as a legal advisor, not in a capacity indicative of a return to his former role.

Acknowledged Contributions

Dr. Jordaan acknowledged Motlanthe’s significant contributions to SAFA and affirmed his ongoing role in the association’s activities.

Despite resigning as CEO in 2023, Motlanthe continues to be valued for his expertise and commitment to South African football.

Looking Ahead

With the upcoming 2024/25 season looming, Kruger United is preparing for further growth.

Plans include team strengthening, appointing a new coach following Vusi Mkhatshwa’s retirement, and announcing their home ground venue in the near future.

In summary, Tebogo Motlanthe’s new leadership role at Kruger United marks a promising chapter for both him and the ambitious football club, while his continued involvement with SAFA remains pivotal amidst ongoing developments in South African football.
