Former Manchester United midfielder, South African born Quinton Fortune, has landed himself a new coaching position, joining Veljko Paunovic as his assistant coach at Mexican side Deportivo Guadalajara.
Fortune had previously worked at Manchester United, as an Under 23 assistant coach, before joining Paunovic at Reading Football Club as their first team coach.
His latest move sees him being roped in by Paunovic again, but this time in South America to join Mexican giants Chivas.
“Club Deportivo Guadalajara is a great challenge for Veljko Paunovic, so he will need the support of highly qualified people who complement the intentions of the new Atletico coach,” the club conveyed via their website.
“Fortune, who played for Manchester United and Atlético de Madrid in his playing career, in addition to playing in the 1998 and 2002 World Cups with the South African national team, will be in charge of plays in fixed tactics (set pieces). Something that worldwide has gained a lot of relevance, since it is increasingly common for teams to do damage in this manner.”
The Cape Town UEFA Pro Licence holder, left his hometown as a teenager to join Tottenham Hotspurs academy, but soon after made a move to Spain to join Real Mallorca. Before this recent move to Mexico, he was appointed as a youth coach at the England FA Elite football coaching program.
