Trouble Brewing At Baroka
There Seems To Be Some Trouble Brewing At Baroka FC
There could be trouble brewing at Baroka FC, with a divided camp forming at the club over the role of a key member of staff.
According to Siya sources, there are disgruntled figures in both the technical team and playing staff regarding the influence of team manager, Lawrence Okwara, who is reportedly heavily involved with who is signed and played by the club.
Baroka narrowly avoided relegation last year as the managed to stay in the Absa Premiership via the promotional play-offs, and while they’re looking to avoid a similar scenario in 2017/18, their internal problems appear to be persisting.
The Siya crew have been informed that several members of staff, both on and off the field, are growing increasingly disillusioned at the club, with some even considering trying to leave because of the issues there.
A source said, “There is a feeling that the club has lost good players and coaches because of the influence of the wrong people, and it’s disappointing for many people there.”
Baroka are looking to make a number of signings before the transfer window closes so that they can try and avoid a relegation scrap in the new campaign.
