In a statement issued by the club, it is said that Mhlongo has left as a result of the technical team changes made to the side.

“TS Sporting would want to take this opportunity and inform the public about the appointment of Mr Mfanimbela Maseko as the interim coach. This appointment came as a result of our head’s coach absence since the 13th November 2018,” confirmed Sporting in their statement.

“We must, however, indicate that his decision was triggered by our request made to him to work closely with the technical director Mr Sammy Troughton and he indicated that he wants to consult his manager and he will revert on his decision. His manager has informed us through email that his client has taken a sabbatical leave till now we still we haven’t heard from him except to say that he handed over all the properties of the team.

“The team will make a proper announcement as to what is to be the way forward in due course. His absence was a shock because it was unexpected and is something that we were not prepared for. But when we look deep into it we feel extremely grateful to have worked with him and the level of discipline he introduced to the team. He was quickly able to turn things around hence you see the position the team currently occupies.

“The one thing about Mr Benson Mhlongo is how much he truly cares about developing people and developing not only soccer players but good people. We believe that at the time we are at now, is that he’s really given us all the tools we need to succeed and proceed to the next level. It’s sad to think of not having him by our side, but at the same time, we are excited that wherever his career might take him to, we know he will succeed and will make us proud.

"We have confidence in his manager that he will give him an advice that will be in his interest in specific and the interest of football in the country and beyond in general. From what we know from what he brought to our team and the soccer brains he has, we have no doubt that his going to succeed wherever he finds himself. We must, however, indicate without any fear of self-contradiction that for now he still remains our trusted head coach until we hear from him or circumstances determines otherwise,” read the club’s statement.
