An assistant coach at one of the PSL clubs has been suspended ahead of the league's resumption after the FIFA international break this past weekend.
With Baroka FC preparing for their Absa Premiership match against Chippa United at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Saturday, the Siya crew has learnt that the Limpopo outfit has suspended the club's assistant coach, Fani Mthethwa.
Mthethwa is in his first season with Bakgaga, having joined the club as an assistant coach in the technical team of former Zambia national team coach, Wedson Nyirenda.
News reaching the Siya crew is that Mthethwa has since been suspended from his technical team duties at the club.
“Fani Mthethwa has been suspended from his duties as the assistant coach of Baroka. He was called into a meeting with the club and was told of the plans to redeploy him into a different position. The coach was against that idea and refused. He says he was employed to be an assistant coach of the first team and not any other role. He has been told to stay away from the team’s training sessions,” said the source.
The Siya crew has been informed that a disciplinary hearing for Mthethwa at Baroka has been scheduled for next Tuesday.
