African Cup of Nations winning captain Neil Tovey is back at Sundowns to assist head coach Paul Dolezar with his duties at the beleaguered Pretoria club.
Tovey joins the Brazilians just days before an electric Absa Cup first round clash against the team he served with such distinction as a player, Kaizer Chiefs, on Sunday.
"I've signed a contract to be with Sundowns until the end of the season," Tovey said. "After that we'll renegotiate to see if they still want me on board.
Dolezar and Tovey were at the helm of the Brazilians back in 1999 but
did not enjoy the success they had hoped.
However, with a lot more coaching experience under his belt now, Tovey is confident of uplifting the struggling former Castle Premiership champions.
"A team like this does not deserve to be in their position, said Tovey. I've already started training with them and a few players lack confidence.
"We are working on that and they'll be ready in no time.
"As for the Chiefs game everyone knows about the battles that have happened and probably expect it again.
"And yes it will probably be a thrilling game as Sundowns want to get their hands on a trophy, added Tovey.
My goal therefore is to help them get to the Absa final and to also win every remaining game in the league to finish in a respectable position.
