The Siya crew have learnt that Bloemfontein Celtic have parted ways with one of the club’s long-term employees.
Back in March, the Siya crew reported that Celtic had retrenched former CEO Khumbulani Konco following a section 189 process in which he was the only casualty, after an alleged spat with the club chairman Max Tshabalala.
Now, the crew has learnt that Celtic have parted ways with another of the club’s employees, this time team manager Lesiba Mothokoa. The former goalkeeper was called into the club’s offices last week and informed by Tshabalala that he would be relieved of his duties – although the reason for his axing is still unknown.
Mothokoa has been part of Celtic for the last seven years, but he has been working with Tshabalala for 12 years, where he played as a goalkeeper for Roses United and moved on when Tshabalala purchased Celtic in 2014, serving as the development manager until 2017 before being promoted to the first team.
The Siya crew made attempts to contact Celtic for comment, although the club was unavailable at the time of publishing.
More changes are expected at the Mangaung outfit, particularly with regards to playing staff following the club’s disappointing campaign that saw them finish 11th on the DStv Premiership standings.
