Ex-Free State Stars coach Serame Letsoaka keeping CV updated
Posted: 4 October 2017 Time: 16:00
Serame Letsoaka says he is enjoying his break from coaching, but has continued expanding his knowledge in the football sphere as his agent works on his next move.
The Senekal-born coach, who enjoyed the rare feat of being in charge of both Free State rivals Bloemfontein Celtic and Free State Stars in one campaign, was dropped by the latter at the end of last season following their narrow escape from relegation.
Letsoaka has yet to find a new job, but says plans are in the pipeline for future endeavours, which he would not specify.
“I think my game of golf has tremendously improved,” he tells KickOff.com.
“But no, my agent has been working on a few things which I’ll be doing in the next two months or so, and I have also been engaged in some projects I am doing with FIFA.”
Since the start of the season, three coaches have been given the chop – Sammy Troughton, Peter Butler and Dan Malesela – with Letsoaka explaining that his “work with FIFA” are coaching courses he has used to keep updated with the times.
“I’ve been doing coaching courses, both youth coaching courses, which I do in other countries, and also senior coaching courses,” he said.
Letsoaka, who also previously coached Golden Arrows in the PSL, is known for his work with young footballers. He was in charge of the South African U-12, U-17 and U-20 teams, and was as an assistant coach to the U-23 team a decade ago, while he also worked as the national team assistant coach from 2012 to 2014.
