Baroka assure under pressure Thobejane


Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele has broken his silence on the future of under-pressure head coach Kgoloko Thobejane.


Following last week's 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Sekhukhune United, Bakgaga remain rooted to the bottom of the DStv Premiership table with just 14 points from 19 matches played.


Mphahlele has now moved to assure Thobejane that his position won't be decided by the result of their next clash, at home to Kaizer Chiefs.

"No, the coach is safe until the end of the season," Mphahlele tells KickOff.


"He's got a contract with the club to remain until the end of the season."


Thobejane recently also bemoaned his side's finishing after clinching a point against Mamelodi Sundowns on Valentine's Day.

"At home, we need to declare it a slaughterhouse but there's only one challenge in football, that's the one killing us, finishing! Finishing! Finishing!"


Kick-off at Peter Mokaba Stadium for the much-anticipated clash between Baroka and Chiefs on Saturday is at 19:30.
