KickOff.com has learnt that Black Leopards coach Jean Losciuto has gone missing from training and may be on his way out.
The former Nigeria assistant coach missed Lidoda Duvha's first game of the new National First Division season against Mbombela United at the Kanyamazane Stadium on Saturday.
Leopards managed a narrow 1-0 win courtesy of a goal from Phathutshedzo Nange.
According to information gathered from a reliable source in Limpopo, Losciuto is no longer with Leopards as he seeks a move away from the club.
"The coach has not been at training since last week. It doesn't look like he is staying with the club this season and wants to move," confirmed the source.
After failing to promote Leopards to the top flight via the Promotion Play-Offs in June, Losciuto tendered his resignation but was subsequently convinced by the club to stay on.
The Belgian tactician still has more than two years left on his deal, having signed a three-year contract when he took over from Sello Chokoe in November 2016.
Meanwhile, Leopards boss David Thidiela has confirmed Losciuto's absence from training but maintained that the coach was on 'sick leave.'
