Solomons talking to Polokwane


Solomons, who has been absent from club activities since Tuesday, has been approached by the Limpopo side, who are searching for a head coach since they parted ways with Duncan Lechesa last month. reported on Tuesday that either Stanley Tshosane or Boebie Solomons could take over at struggling City.

“The reason for Boebie’s absence from our training sessions is because he asked for permission from the club to speak to Polokwane City,” Augousti reveals to

“Boebie said he aspired to become a head coach again. I think everything will be finalised today whether he stays put at Celtic or joins City. We will only have full details regarding his future by the end of today.”

Solomons replaced Molefi Ntseki as the assistant coach to Clinton Larsen in June last year.

Larsen resigned suddenly last Monday following a string of uninspiring results, and has now joined Maritzburg United, essentially swapping places with Ernst Middendorp.

The football fraternity thought Solomons would likely be Larsen’s successor at Celtic, but club management had other ideas and gave the job to Middendorp instead.

“There were people who said he was going to stab me in the back and take my job but I’ve always had a good relationship with Boebie, especially off the field,” Larsen was quoted as saying by the Sowetan in November.

“Now people can see there is a great chemistry in our technical team. I hope that the doubters can now see that. Boebie is not out to take my job but I’m a realist. If things don’t work out for me then he’ll be a natural to take over. But it has been a perfect partnership.”

Meanwhile, former Celtic defender and now club chief scout Lehlohonolo Seema is assisting Middendorp during training sessions.
