Roger de Sa may not be able to coach anywhere else

Posted: 6 February 2018 Time: 19:45

Platinum Stars head coach Roger de Sa says it's too early to tell if he will be able to coach another PSL team again as he is part of the consortium which purchased Dikwena.

The club revealed last week Thursday that it has been sold for R22,5 million to Johannesburg-based company Rawat Petroleum from previous owners Royal Bafokeng Holdings.

The 53-year-old former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper is part of a four-man consortium that now owns the club, with other members based in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

It will make it difficult for him to work anywhere else in future, but he is not concerning himself with that right now as Dikwena are fighting relegation. 

"Ja, headache [laughs]," De Sa tells KickOff.com.

"Yes of course [I will not be able to coach any other team now]. I gotta be committed to the cause and that's certain. But it's still early days and we'll see how it goes and how it works out.

"Coaching is part of my blood, as I say it's still early days. I'm still a coach, it's just that now I have a stake just like I do in a lot of other businesses, so we'll carry on. I can't think further than next week right now."

Stars are currently bottom of the Absa Premiership table with 16 points from 20 matches, four points behind 15th-placed Ajax Cape Town, though Dikwena have a game in hand.

Stars will now turn their attention to the Nedbank Cup. They take on PSL rivals Baroka FC in the last 32 next Wednesday.
