Santos confirm Palmer appointment



National First Division side Santos have appointed Ian Palmer as their new coach, the club confirmed on Monday.

Palmer was earlier this month axed as coach of Absa Premiership side Black Leopards, but was not out of work for long after being snapped up by Santos, who were seeking a replacement for the departed Dutch coach Mart Nooij.

“Following a substandard start to the NFD season, Santos Chairman [Goolam Allie], believes a change in the management may reignite the once formidable PSL side and spark hope of a comeback, trailing the leaders by only 11 points,” the club said in a statement.

“Having played himself, and having coached a number of South African based sides, his knowledge of the local game is most definitely going to be an advantage to The Peoples’ Team heading into the second round.

“We would like to wish Ian Palmer all the best as he takes the reigns [sic] in what we hope, will be a successful spell with the boys in yellow.”

Palmer also has coaching experience with Maritzburg United in the top-flight and has also worked as an analyst for the SuperSport channel.
