Riekerink Parts Ways With City, New Coach Incoming?

Cape Town City have confirmed a big development within their coaching department, with sources indicating that an announcement on his replacement is imminent.

The club had initially placed coach Jan Olde Riekerink on “administrative leave” earlier this month and tasked Diogo Peral with overseeing the first team duties in the interim, but have now confirmed his exit.

In a statement on Twitter this Friday, City said Riekerink would return to Europe and thanked him for his services.

"The club can confirm that it has officially parted ways with coach Jan Olde Riekerink by mutual agreement. Jan will return to Europe to continue his coaching career. We thank Jan for his contribution to the City family and wish him every success in his future endeavours," read a statement from teh club on social media. 

He was appointed coach in November 2019 following the departure of Benni McCarthy and it's understood Eric Tinkler is being lined up for a possible return, having already met with chairman John Comitis, according to Siya sources. 

Riekerink guided City to sixth place finish in the league last season, but struggled to consistently produce results in this current 2020/21 campaign that only has two rounds to be played. 

According to Siya sources, Tinkler is set to make his homecoming for yet another spell at the Cape Town club, and it is understood that he will take over the bench for the last two games of the season.
