Sekhukhune United have confirmed on Tuesday afternoon, that they have sacked their head coach Kaitano Tembo.
The former SuperSport United head coach has only managed to win two games all season, putting himself in a peculiar position, and ultimately leading to the relieving of his duties at Babina Noko.
“I wish to thank Coach Kaitano for his dedication and hard work whilst at the Club”, said CEO Mr. Jonas Malatji.
“Ever the Professional that he is, and with his impeccable work ethic, the decision to part ways was an extremely difficult one. Sport in general and football in particular is result driven, and this remains true for the club that finds itself in a very precarious position in the DSTV Premiership.”
Coach Kaitano thanked the Chairman and Board for having given him an opportunity at the club.
“I wish to thank the players for their dedication, the support of the Technical Team and support Staff, and wish the Club and its supporters the very best.”
“The Board and Management at the Club wishes Coach Kaitano the very best in his future endeavours. The Club will in the meantime begin its search for a Coach in earnest, and will not make any further statements on this matter”. Statement ends.
Last season the club ended in 11th place, six points away from the top eight, but brought in a new coach in Kaitano Tembo, as well as releasing 14 players after such an incredible debut season.
