Black Leopards fire coach Sean Connor

Posted: 17 September 2014 Time: 09:47

Black Leopards have shown their Northern Ireland coach Sean Connor the exit door just six weeks after appointing him.

Connor has been fired before he even sat on the bench after a protracted wait for the issuing of his work permit. has it on good authority that assistant coach Ashwin Sutton will now take over as caretaker coach with the assistance of Solly Luvhengo.

Word reaching is that club boss David Thidiela showed Connor the door yesterday as he wasn’t impressed with the Northern Irishman who was recruited in July after a spell with Zimbabwean club CAPS United.

Leopards – who are keen on promotion – have drawn two and lost once in their opening three games.

hahaha! "Fired without him even sitting on the bench?" Lol... so how did thidiela made his assesment on the coach, what made him to fire a coach which he himself appointed to take them forward into the promise land? (psl). This is a joke! Rediculous! Leopards won't see the psl anytime soon, they should just watch chippa getting relegated, again! Once and always bucs.

This Thidiela man will not succeed in in football coz his conduct of firing coaches is unbearable. Firing coach b4 sitting on the bench? Is bad, that's why people of limpopo doesnt support this. It's too persona;ised
