Leopards Coach Fired, Allegedly Hit By A Car

Belgian coach, Ivan Minnaert, says that he was assaulted by a Black Leopards official after they sent him a letter terminating his contract at the club.

Minnaert has only been in charge at leopards for six games following his appointment last month, but he was recently informed that they no longer wanted him as their head coach.
 
Now, according to the coach, he is in the hospital and has opened up a police investigation after being hit by the car that he was given when he joined the club. He was told to return it on Wednesday, but a club official – who will remain unnamed at this stage – came to take it from his home. 
 
The Belgian told the Siya crew, “They terminated the contract, and told me that I need to bring all the stuff back by 5 pm today (Wednesday), I confirmed that in my answer to them. I went for supper and then I received a call from someone at the club asking where I was. I told them that I’d bring back the car tomorrow as requested and wouldn’t be giving it to anybody else. 
 
“Around 9.30pm I went home, and I went to my bed. Then 15 minutes later I heard the car starting. I went out and saw them trying to leave with the car. I wanted to stop him and said that they needed to leave the car because I needed to take it back tomorrow.
 
“Then he went back with the car and at full speed tried to hit me”, he claims. “At the last moment I jumped onto the front of the car to try and avoid it, then I fell against the wall. I have back pain, neck pain and contusions also. I’m in the hospital now, and there’s already a criminal declaration.
 
“They think I’m a dog and that they can just throw me out on the streets, but I have my rights and everything. They need to pay me. The police have said I can’t leave the country until it’s been investigated.”
 
The crew contacted Leopards' administrator, Tendani Thidiela, who said that he was looking into the situation.
