Sekhukhune United boss, Jonas Malatji has confirmed that Willard Katsande has retired and will be taking up a role as the club's brand ambassador.
"He will be looking after the image of the club. He will be our official envoy, at the highest ranking football wise, and players will be looking up to him," said Malatji on Thursday, as the Limpopo club prepares for a trip to the Harry Gwala Stadium in the Midlands to play against Maritzburg United on Saturday.
The 36-year-old Zimbabwean, Katsande, joined Sekhukhune in August last year from Kaizer Chiefs, which he joined in 2011 from Ajax Cape Town.
It has been speculated in the media over the couple of days, but Malatji put it beyond any reasonable doubt that the social media celebrity has taken over a new role.
