The Siya crew has been informed that there could be another coaching change in the DSTV Premiership.
The likes of Eric Tinkler, Ayanda Dlamini, Dan Malesela, Lehlohonolo Seema and Patrick Assuems, are all coaches who have been shown the door this season, look set to be joined by Joel Masutha, with results not improving for Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in the DSTV Premiership.
TTM have struggled in the league this season, registering just one victory in their first 10 matches. They are just three points ahead of bottom of the table Black Leopards. Masutha is under tremendous pressure and he is living on borrowed time at the club.
The Siya crew has been informed that TTM have made contact with possible replacements. One of the coaches they made contact with, according to a source, is new TS Galaxy coach Owen da Gama. It was been revealed that TTM made contact with Da Gama just a day before he was announced as coach of The Rockets this past Monday.
Da Gama was also linked with TTM before the start of the new season, after they bought Bidvest Wits, but a deal did not materialise.
According to a source, Da Gama was also approached by Chippa United before they appointed Dan Malesela.
“Da Gama was approached by the TTM chairman, but he was not interested in the job. He was more than happy to join TS Galaxy,” the source tells the Siya crew.
During his unveiling on Monday, Da Gama revealed that there were clubs interested in appointing him.
“I’d also like to share with you that I was approached by one or two PSL teams, but I was not really convinced in joining any of these teams,” he told the media on Monday.
It does not get any easier for TTM, with a clash against sixth-placed Golden Arrows away from home on Saturday, January 16. Arrows are one of three sides yet to lose a match in the league this season.
