Doc keen to focus on youth development

Newly-appointed Baroka FC technical director Doctor Khumalo wants to ensure sustainability at the club by focussing on youth development.

The former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder and technical team member on Thursday ended a 31-year stay with Amakhosi after it was announced he was heading for Limpopo top-flight club Baroka FC.

The 50-year-old Khumalo says he’s looking forward to the new challenge, and explains that he plans to emphasise the development of young players at the club.

“The game is about venturing into challenges. You might look at a challenge and think it’s difficult, but if you don’t take those challenges, then you can’t gauge yourself to see where you are,” the former Bafana Bafana star told the media.

“The most important thing is working on the development. We need to dig out the talent. 

“It’s not only about me going to Baroka to be the technical director, but it’s about the bigger picture. I am there to make sure the development structures are in place.”
