Heric Wishes Leopards Well
08 May 2012
Former Black Leopards coach, Vladislav Heric, has spoken to the Siya crew after it was announced that he had stepped down from his role as Lidoda Duvha’s head coach.
It was revealed by the crew on Tuesday that the Serbian had left the club due to too much interference from the club’s management, however the former African Warriors coach has explained that the decision was made after he had discussed the matter with the club’s chairman, David Thidiela.
Heric told the crew, “Yes, I’ve resigned from Leopards. There was a misunderstanding on the bench, I was overruled, so I spoke with the chairman about what was the best way and we decided that the best way is to part ways. I’ll return to my home in Cape Town now and see if there are any opportunities that come up.”
The Serbian also wanted to wish the club the best of luck without him and thanked them and the players for their efforts while he was in charge. He believes that they have what it takes to stay in the PSL.
He concluded, “There’s nothing I can say. I would like to thank the club for the opportunity to work there, I’d like to thank my players, mostly because of the effort that they put in, they fought for me for 90 minutes every single game, I never had a problem with them. I’d just like to thank everyone, there’s no bad blood, it’s just a decision that has been made.
“I believe that they will survive, yesterday (Monday) I set up the tactics for the next game and prepared them for the game to get three points and I believe that they can make it. I’m very confident, very sure that the players will make it.”
Former head coach, Sunday Chidzambwa, will take over from Heric on an interim basis until they find permanent replacement.
