Stars On Coach’s Appointment: We Learnt Our Lesson With Foreign Coaches
Free State Stars Technical Team Finalised
The Siya crew broke the news this morning (Monday) that Free State Stars appointed Sammy Troughton, as the club’s new head coach for the upcoming season.
The news has now been officially confirmed by the Bethlehem club. Ea Lla Koto’s general manager, Rantsi Mokoena, has explained how the appointment of the former Stellenbosch FC coach came about.
“The club has decided to appoint Sammy purely because he has been with the club before, he knows the culture of the club. We decided on local coach than to go abroad as we have learnt our lesson with foreign coaches that we did not do well under them.
“He has done tremendously with previous clubs he has worked at. Whilst still at Tuks, Tuks was very competitive they were never relegated under him. He also took Stellenbosch to the play-offs and almost got them promoted to the Premiership.
“Another factor, he has worked with ‘Sly’ Mosala and I am adamant that they will do well working together,” Mokoena told Stars’ official website.
