Cape Town City have placed their head coach Jan Olde Riekerink on leave, following some disappointing results.
Following their 5-1 loss at home against high-flying AmaZulu last Wednesday, the Citizens lost 1-0 to TS Galaxy at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.
The Mother City outfit is in seventh place on the DStv Premiership log after winning nine from 26 matches and have lost eight and drawn nine.
City have confirmed that assistant coach Diogo Peral will take charge of the team until further notice, following a decision to place the Dutch coach on an administrative leave with immediate effect.
“The club can confirm that it has placed coach Jan Olde Riekerink on administrative leave, with immediate effect. Club assistant coach Diogo Peral will take charge of the team until further notice,” City confirmed in a statement on the club’s official Twitter account.
