PSL Coaches Seeing Exit Signs

We are barely at the half-way stage of the 2016/17 season, and there has already been a merry-go-round in the coaching fraternity. The latest news making the rounds is the resignation of former Maritzburg United head coach Ernst Middendorp after citing that he did not want to cause any more damage to the club and its brand. The list of coaches making moves is increasing rapidly!

One of the first mentors who were shown the exit door this season was former Free State Stars coach Denis Lavagne. After just three games under his leadership, Ea Lla Koto felt he was not the right man for the job and brought back their tried and tested head coach Giovanni Solinas.

October saw three clubs looking for new mentors. The first to see the chopping block was Highlands Park's Allan Freese. He guided the Lions of the North to the PSL, but after three defeats, he was replaced at the helm by Gordon Igesund. Ajax Cape Town were left sucking their thumbs after Roger De Sa handed in his resignation letter after a string of poor results that saw the Urban Warriors linger in the danger zone on the log standings, while Bloemfontein Celtic gave Serame Letsoaka the boot after the 53-year-old managed just six wins out of the 27 matches he was in charge of.

In November, a surprise television resignation took place, when Muhsin Ertugral confirmed, after Orlando Pirates suffered a 6-1 hammering at the hands of SuperSport United, that he was going to leave the club. The Turkish mentor felt it was disappointing for a team with a great history to lose by such a margin, and decided to call it a day at Mayfair.

The latest to hand in his resignation is Middendorp after he once again parted ways with Maritzburg United.

What are your thoughts on the coaches who have vacated their positions this season?
