Baroka Chairman To Boost Coaching Department

Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele has revealed that he will boost his coaching department by investing in the education of Matsimela Thoka, who he feels has performed better than most of the coaches they’ve had.

Bakgaga may not be completely safe from relegation, but they are closer to the top eight than they are to the bottom, which at this stage of the season is something they are not used to. Tenth-placed Baroka are on 21 points after 19 matches and are for once not stressing about relegation, though they cannot get too complacent.

They know that anything more than 30 points would be enough to confirm their spot in the top flight for at least another season.

Thoka has been with the club since its inception in 2007 and has served mostly as an assistant to coaches the club has hired. He was finally given the opportunity to work as permanent head coach following the departure of Dylan Kerr and he has done well. 

“He is doing a wonderful job. We have never been in this position. He is performing better than most of the coaches we have employed. At the end of the season we will be looking investing in the education of coach Thoka and look at coaching courses abroad,” Mphahlele tells the Siya crew.

“He has been here since the club started, so we don’t talk about contracts. He needs to focus on the job at hand. Does he have a job? Yes, he does. We won’t discuss bonuses now because the team must focus on the job at hand. We will see at the end of the season.”
