Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila are backed for best finish to the season by their former coach Vladislav Heric.
Heric had hoped to guide the team to promotion this season after he was appointed as the club’s head coach in December.
At the time of Heric’s appointment, club boss Masala Mulaudzi said they agreed to a R1 million bonus with the Serbian coach to get the team promoted.
With the club having since bought the top flight status of Bidvest Wits while Heric had been put on ‘special leave’, the mentor believes that TTM can still qualify for the promotional play-offs as the team is in 4th place on the log with six matches to go.
“The good thing is that TTM can still get promoted. The team can still qualify for the play-offs. They are 4th on the log and they can still qualify for the play-offs and win them. That is good for the club,” said Heric.
Heric has the experience of helping teams to promotion, having done so with Chippa United in the 2013/14 season.
“The man who bought the club (TTM) could find himself owning a team in the PSL (Absa Premiership). That would be very interesting. If the club gets promoted he would have bought a club in the PSL with NFD (GladAfrica Championship) money. That would be good for the new owner,” the coach told the Siya crew.
