Former AmaZulu coach Brandon Truter could be heading to succeed Kaitano Tembo, who was recently shown the door at Sekhukhune United. With the rumour doing the rounds, ThisIsFootball.Africa spoke to Truter’s agent to find the truth behind these rumours.
The former Richards Bay mentor enjoyed a successful spell with Swallows in the Glad Africa Championship (Now Motsepe Foundation Championship), winning promotion with the team to the premier division in 2019/2020 season, and having a relatively first season in the PSL. However a shaky second PSL season led to his sacking from the Beautiful Birds.
Truter is currently club-less after he parted ways with AmaZulu recently, following a poor string of results. The 52-year-old was responsible for the team for just over five months.
It has been reported that Truter is thought to be one of the front-runners’ candidates to succeed Kaitano Tembo as Sekhukhune coach, and further reports suggest that he is in talks with the club.
His agent Basia Michaels would not deny the rumours when ask by ThisIsFootball.Africa, and it now seems a matter of time before Truter is unveiled at the Limpopo club.
“Yes, there are a handful of teams that have shown interest in the coach’s services, but I won’t mention them,” Michaels told ThisIsFootball.Africa.
“With regard to Sekhukhune, that can only be confirmed when it happens, and he hasn’t signed a contract of employment with them as things stand right now.
However, when this publication tried to find out if Babina Noko had already approached the coach’s representative, Michaels insisted the club has not contacted her as yet!
