Three-Year Deal For Connor At Leopards

Black Leopards new coach Sean Connor has been appointed on a three-year deal by the Limpopo outfit and has been given a mandate to promote the club to the PSL.

The Siya crew broke the news that Connor is the new man to take charge of the side that missed out narrowly on promotion back to the PSL at the end of last season.

Connor’s agent Ali Tlhoaele confirmed to the Siya crew that the former CAPS United coach is on a long-term deal at Lidoda Duvha.   

“I have signed the coach with Black Leopards on a three-year deal. His name is Sean Connor. His mandate is to promote the team to the PSL, obviously. My company KN Sports Management and I have a good relationship of more than five years with the coach. He is holding a UEFA Pro Licence and has previously worked at a number of European clubs,” said Tlhoaele.

The Siya crew spoke to the 47-year-old Northern Ireland-born coach, following his arrival in Limpopo to begin his job with Leopards.

“It’s nice to be at the club and it’s a big honour. I’m very excited and looking forward to work and I hope that I can deliver. I’ve watched a lot of South African football and I know that the standard is very good. There are good football players as well. I coached against Leopards when we beat the team and (Mamelodi) Sundowns when (Johan) Neeskens was the coach of the club in 2012. I was coaching CAPS United at the time. It was a pre-season tournament and the other team we played against was from Zambia. They were Zambian champions at the time,” said Connor.
