Shoes Explains Alexandra United Exit

Legendary former Bafana Bafana midfielder, Shoes Moshoeu, has explained his frustration at why he decided to step down from his post as coach of Alexandra United. 

Moshoeu had been player/coach for the past four years at the club, who ply their trade in the ABC Motsepe League in Gauteng.

The 48-year-old explained that management interference played a role in his decision to leave.

He told the Siya crew, "I'd invested so much in that team. I had to go around and get the players. I even had to talk to their families - some of the mothers and fathers wanted the players to go to school instead of training. So, there were players who'd play without training. "

"It's because some of them I had so much trust in, you know. So, the question I ask is, 'Why did management interfere now when we were top of the table?' I mean the results speak for themselves!"

Moshoeu added, "So, we were winning and then the club's director, Nick Nicolaou, introduced another coach. I mean before this, I was doing everything as coach. I mean the team was on top of the log and then you want to make changes what for?

"They then started to find flaws in what the team was doing. When I left, we were left with something like six games and we had a four-point lead."

The former Kaizer Chiefs star concluded that he felt undermined given his years of top level experience in football,"I stepped down because I didn't want who they wanted to bring in. Why suddenly do they think I need assistance? I played 30 years of professional football. Bro, I was coached by the World Cup winning coach, Franz Beckenbauer, when I was in Germany."

"I was coached by Carlos Perreira - he won it with Brazil. I was coached by Joachim Low, the current German coach. I mean I played for one of the top teams in South Africa with Chiefs. I spent my time, money and everything for Alex. I did everything for those boys - training, transport money and getting them food to eat. I spent a fortune, so I don't understand the club's thinking, you know."    

The crew attempted to get a fair play from Alex United's management, yet we were unable to get a comment at the time of publishing this article.
