Gone! Stars Coach Becomes PSL’s First Coaching Casualty Of 2017/18

Free State Stars Have Parted Ways With Sammy Troughton

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 24, 2017 10:30 AM
Sammy Troughton’s status as head coach of Free State Stars has lasted just two games. The Irishman parted ways with Ea Lla Koto following last night’s game.
 
 
Troughton was appointed at Stars early last month, following their decision not to continue with Serame Letsoaka, although his spell in Bethlehem has not lasted long.
 
The Siya crew reported yesterday that the writing was on the wall for the 53-year-old, with Luc Eymael back in the country and linked with the job, and Siya sources have now revealed that Troughton has been informed that he will not be staying on at the club.
 
As things stand there has been no confirmation of whether Eymael will take over from Troughton, although at this stage he is the hot favourite and is believed to have been lined up by Stars.
 
The club lost their first game of the season against AmaZulu before snatching a late draw at Bidvest Wits last night, however the point was enough to secure Troughton’s future as he becomes the first casualty of the 2017/18 Absa Premiership campaign.

Sammy Troughton, please submit your CV to Siya Soccer Laduma, they will submit your CV to Kaizer Chiefs, the SL team want to see Khompela out by end of business today, and tomorrow Kaizer will call a press conference announcing your name.

Warras4khosi, I don't blame the commitment and desire yesterday, especially in the second half. I know games where we lose without positive effort. Jose Mourinho would walk-in into a dejected dressing room and say “well done boys, I cannot fault you today" same words I send to the Kaizer Chiefs players. Next time, we will win as long as we apply more and above the same desire, intensity and the ultimate of them all, is to score more than our opponents do against us.

You will be in play-off this season if you still continue with the same attitude of last season.
