A relegation-threatened Premier Soccer League club has been dealt a blow this week, after both its general manager and coach resigned.
Following the departure of Richard Makhoba from Royal Eagles at the beginning of the week, the GladAfrica Championship outfit has been dealt another blow, after Morena Ramoreboli has also tendered his resignation.
Makhoba and Ramoreboli have been working as general manager and coach of the KwaZulu-Natal club respectively.
For some time now, the KZN outfit has been hit by off-the-field controversy, which led to the team’s 2019/20 campaign starting behind schedule, after some of the team’s matches were postponed at the beginning of the season.
“Morena Ramoreboli has resigned from his position as the coach of Royal Eagles. There have been issues that forced him to decide that it was no longer possible for him to continue working for the club. He has already left KZN and is in Bloemfontein,” said the source.
“The coach’s resignation follows that of general manager Richard Makhoba, who left at the beginning of the week,” the source added.
Eagles are 16th on the log in the second tier with no win after five matches. Attempts to get a comment from the club’s boss Sbu Mpisane had been unsuccessful at the time of publication.
