Black Leopards have elevated Joel Masutha to the position of head coach, following the suspension of David Bright.
Bright, who has been the head coach of Lidoda Duvha this season, has been reportedly at loggerheads with the Limpopo outfit in recent times.
A source close to the NFD side confirmed to the Siya crew that the Botswana coach has been given a special leave and replaced with Masutha in the first team.
“Coach Joel Masutha is in charge as head coach Major David Bright has been given a special leave. The decision was taken yesterday after the afternoon training session,” said the source.
Leopards are fifth on the NFD standings with three wins in their opening seven games of the season.
