City Still Coachless

Polokwane City have been without a coach for a month since Duncan Lechesa parted ways with the PSL newcomers last month.

City was recently linked with Clinton Larsen and Manqoba Mngqithi following their resignations from Bloemfontein Celtic and Golden Arrows respectively. With Larsen joining Maritzburg United and Mngqithi denying that he has been approached by the Polokwane-based club, it seems City will be without a coach for a while.

Patrick Baloyi, the team’s Media and Liaison officer, revealed to the Siya crew that they are not in a hurry to employ just any coach that happens to be available. They are looking for a mentor who will stay with the team on a long term basis.

“We do not have new candidates and I cannot deny or confirm whether we earmarked Mngqithi and Larsen. We know we have a challenge to get a coach but we will announce something soon.

"The fact that we do not have a coach doesn’t impact negatively on our team, we have professional players and they are united. At the moment, we cannot tell you who we are targeting as our new coach,” said Baloyi.

When asked about the possibility of offering Eduardo Schoeler the head coach job, Baloyi refused to comment.

City have nine games to wrap up their first round league schedule and are currently in 15th position after six rounds of league action. Their next game is against Wits away on Wednesday, October 23.

“We are preparing well for the game and Schoeler has done tremendously well for us. He kept the team united and there are lots of positives since he took over. We are closer to finding a suitable coach and we’ll soon make an announcement,” added Baloyi.
