    Former FIFA referee Andile Ncobo roped in as PSL general manager

    The Premier Soccer League has announced that former referee Andile ‘Ace’ Ncobo has made his return to the league as general manager of football.

    Ncobo’s appointment was announced on Tuesday by the league’s governing body and the body said it was pleased to have him back.

    “The PSL is pleased to announce the appointment of experienced administrator Andile “Ace” Ncobo, who joins the league in the capacity of general manager in the football department,” the league said.

    “The four-time winner of the PSL referee of the season [award] will continue to contribute to professional football in the country while also adding value to improving levels of knowledge regarding the professional game through his involvement with specific SuperSport television.”

    In his previous assignments with the football authority, Ncobo was in charge in the same capacity as PSL general manager from 2008 until his resignation in 2009.

    An excited Ncobo headed to social media to react to the news and confirmed the appointment on social media.

    “A call to serve is a call that we won’t reject. From as far back as I can recall growing up, as young as perhaps age 6, I’ve been living and breathing the game of football,” said the former FIFA referee on Facebook.

    “That’s almost five decades of unbroken involvement in one way or the other. I’m eternally humbled by the confidence shown in me by the football leadership and broader family. Work has started!”
