Former Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana defender Mark Fish, above, was confirmed on Saturday as the new head coach of relegated Thanda Royal Zulu.

Fish, who trained as a coach in the UK, will start his new job today. Lawrence "Big Bear" Ngubane said that Thanda signed a one year contract with Fish, with an option of a two-year renewal.

Ngubane said that he had talked to Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and other clubs about the possibility of players being released to Thanda on loan.

"We have finished all with Fish, we want him to help us to get back to the Absa Premiership.

"I know him and he is a good person. I have also worked with him in the CAF Championship in 1995," said Ngubane.
