Palmer & Leopards Split

Palmer & Leopards Split

By Soccer-Laduma - Jan 02, 2013 11:06 AM

After firstly being suspended by Black Leopards, coach Ian Palmer has now officially parted ways with the Venda side. 

The two parties agreed on New Year's day that they won't further their partnership in 2013 as the differences between them continue to disrupt efforts to strengthen the team. 
 
A Soccer-Laduma source close to the matter said that Palmer was not happy with the way the Thidiela family wanted him to coach the team. 
 
"They have parted ways and as we speak Leopards are looking for a coach. I don't really know who they are talking to right now but they want a coach urgently," said the source. 
 
Asked for comment, P Management, who are taking care of the coach's affairs, sent in a statement which read:
 
"It is true that Leopards and coach Ian Palmer have mutually decided to end the contractual relationship that existed between them due to irreconcilable differences. This is a  matter between the two parties and as a result of different professional approaches to the game. The two parties have greatest respect for each other and seek that media can respect the decision of the split."

True that malackya, Ian wasn't a good coach for Leopards. Why didn't he field the regular players aginst his former team "pirates"? He simply sold the game.

I think management took right decision by terminating Palmer's contract.The vision of Leopards fc is different to that of Palmer.Football is business,youmust hire the right coach with good temperement otherwise you'll find your team in the lower divion.Leopards will fight finishing in the best 8 with players they have as they made SA psl well known in the world.Foreign mentor is advisable to lead the team.By Malackya in Giyani.

Black Leopards is a one man show. There it is whether you listen or jump. Palmer should have known better.

What's wrong with Laopards management? Always hiring and firing.
