GladAfrica Championship side Uthongathi have made a decision to terminate the contract their coach, Sifiso ‘Pitso’ Dladla after a disappointing campaign, the Siya crew has been informed.
According to Siya sources, the Cane Cutters were displeased with their 11th place finish in the league and have started their search for a new coach ahead of the new season.
After a promising 2020/21 campaign, there were high expectations from the KZN outfit this season, but it failed to live up to prospects, with the club not getting anywhere close to any of the promotion spots.
A number of names have already been bandied about to take over the hot seat at the club next season with the likes of Milton Dlamini and Benson Mhlongo being mentioned as possible candidates for the job.
Dladla, who served as assistant coach to coach Johnny Ferreira, was appointed as interim manager in March 2020, but has since been relieved of his duties.
