Leopards Part Ways With Chidzambwa, Makhubele?

It was reported earlier in the week that Black Leopards were expected to meet on the club’s future and their plans for life in the NFD. 

Leopards have been relegated to South Africa’s second tier of football after an unsuccessful season in the PSL, and a source close to the Limpopo outfit has since revealed to the Siya crew that Sunday Chidzambwa and Abel Makhubele have been relieved of their duties.

 

The two worked together in the technical team when Leopards were eventually relegated, following a string of poor results. Chidzambwa was Lidoda Duvha’s technical director, while Makhubele was the caretaker coach of the side.

 

Makhubele wound not confirm the news, comparing coaching to a merry go round. He said,  “That will be confirmed by the management. The right people to speak to are the management of the club. But I will accept anything. Coaching is a merry go round. As a coach you are not stationed in one place all the time. You have to move especially if the results are not coming. 

 

“At Leopards the results didn’t come our way. We are all to blame. We cannot blame just the players. We are to blame as well. Even the management had a role to play. It’s not just one person. It’s all of us. Even the supporters had a role to play. We all contributed. The only way to solve this issue is to sit down and discuss it. Pointing fingers won’t help at the moment,” Makhubele told the Siya crew.

 

Leopards are expected to hire a new coach, with Joel Masutha being linked to the position. Masutha is currently with Phungo All Stars in the SAFA Second Division.

 

The Siya crew contacted Leopards’ chairman David Thidiela for comment on the matter, however he denied any knowledge of the situation. He questioned Soccer-Laduma, “Who told you this?” He added, “I don’t know anything about this.”
