Former Orlando Pirates assistant coach, Benson Mhlongo, is linked with an exit from his current club.
Mhlongo is the coach of TS Sporting in the National First Division, having joined the club in July after parting ways with Pirates.
Reports doing the rounds in the football fraternity claim that Mhlongo has been facing a departure from the second tier outfit.
“Benson Mhlongo was not on the bench for TS Sporting in their match this past weekend. He is facing an exit from the club after the team’s disappointing start to the season,” said the source.
Sporting moved up to the sixth position on the NFD log after the team’s win against Ajax Cape Town at the Kabokweni Stadium in Mpumalanga on Saturday.
Assistant coaches, Mfanimpela Maseko and Richard Mathaba were in charge of the team in Mhlongo's absence.
Prior to Saturday’s match, Sporting were ninth on the log with only one win and had collected four points from three matches.
