Burton Leaves Santos

Santos FC have announced that Edries Burton their COO has resigned after seven years in the post. A statement by the People’s Team complimented the former Bafana Bafana player and the man who, holds their record for the most starts (426), for “his contribution as a player as well as an administrator, and wished him all the success in his future endeavours.”
 
Over twenty years ago, the young defender first joined Lightbody’s Santos from amateurs Moonlighters when Scottish coach, Billy Anderson,  was at the helm.
 
Soccer Laduma was unable to get a comment from Burton.
 
Other news emanating from the National First Division outfit is that former Cape Town Spurs and Maritzburg United goalkeeper, Farouk Abrahams, has been officially appointed as head coach.
 
“It’s been the worst kept secret,” Abrahams told Soccer Laduma. “I was just going to help them out with pre-season but I actually started enjoying it again. Then when my chairman Goolam Allie spoke to me I decided to take the post. It’s a challenge which I’m excited about because we’re obviously going to be underdogs in most of our starting games due to the fact that the likes of Nasief Morris, Ricardo Skippers and Lee Langeveldt have left.
 
“But that’s a nice position to be in as everything will be a surprise. We have a lot of nice youngsters, who are willing to run through a brick wall for the team. Obviously there’s not too much money floating around so you can’t go into the market for Rolls Royce’s. We must just make do with what we have. I plan to win every football match I take part in and who knows Santos might win promotion.”
