Julio Leal is back in South Africa, having taken over as head coach of Polokwane City.
Rise & Shine were coachless after parting ways with Kosta Papic, who left the team in 13th place with nine points from 10 games.
Leal, a former AmaZulu, Moroka Swallows and Orlando Pirates coach, apparently arrived at OR Tambo International this morning and was whisked away to Limpopo.
They have the second worst defensive record this season having conceded 15 goals in 10 League matches behind Maritzburg United, who have conceded 22. The club chairman admits they needed a coach who could bring some "balance" in terms of their play and feels the ex-Orlando Pirates coach, fully aware of their attacking game, is the right fit.
