After retiring, he worked with domestic and foreign clubs and also IPL franchises in a variety of coaching capacities.
I feel proud to be a part of the RPSG family. For me, this is a brand-new task. I’m incredibly proud of it. In the press release, Klusener was noted as stating, “I am excited to meet the team.
