Mamelodi Sundown president Patrice Motsepe revealed the appointment of Jose Ferreira as the Brazilians' Deputy Chief Executive Officer.
Motsepe is still looking for someone to fill the vacant chief executive officer position.
"I am extremely excited to announce that Jose Ferreira, who has been responsible for the legal affairs department at Mamelodi Sundowns since 2002, will henceforth become the club's Deputy CEO," said Motsepe.
"Having served in the first administration when Trevor Phillips took charge of the inaugural PSL back in 1996 makes him a suitable candidate for the position and I think he brings a wealth of experience to the team."
Ferreira is a practicing attorney for over 10 years, as well as the club's legal advisor, and will now be involved in the day-to-day running of the club.
Ferreira said he looked at his added responsibilities as a new and exciting challenge.
"Sundowns has a lot of potential," said Jose, "and it was pleasing to see so many people attending our matches towards the tail end of the season, even though we did not have such a particularly good season.
"But I am confident that once structures have been put in place and after ending the season on such a high note, we are capable of taking off from where we left."
