Motsepe excited to promote Alexanko to head of technical department

Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe was delighted to announce that Jose Ramon Alexanko has been promoted to head of the technical department.

Alexanko joined the Chloorkop outfit in September last year to take over as director of academy and scouting, and he has now been promoted to fill the role of technical director.

"We are also excited that José Ramón Alexanko, who played for and captained FC Barcelona and was also the Head of the FC Barcelona Academy, has joined Mamelodi Sundowns as the Head of the Technical Department," Motsepe said in a press conference.

"He was also the Director of Football at La Liga club, Valencia CF. The Youth Academy, as well as the Senior Team, will benefit immensely from his vast experience and expertise."

The promotion came soon after the announcement that head coach Pitso Mosimane had signed a new four-year contract with the club.
