Freese still in caretaker role


The 57-year-old, who was promoted to the hotseat after Cavin Johnson left for SuperSport United in June, guided Dikwena to MTN8 glory last month - the Rustenburg-based outfit's first trophy since 2006. 

Stars have also advanced to the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals under Freese, while they trail PSL pacesetters Matsatsantsa by two points after six games. 

However, Freese will only have his contract reviewed at the end of the season, according to the club's football manager Senzo Mazingiza.

"Allan Freese is still our caretaker coach, as per the agreement that the club had with him at the beginning of the season," says Mazingiza.

"He will remain as the caretaker coach until the end of the season, as per the current arrangement that the club still has in place with him. 

"What happened is that at the beginning we agreed that here is an opportunity for you coach, to take charge of the team as caretaker coach until the end of the season. 

"As is the case in any normal set-up, a review will then be at the end of that arrangement currently in place.

Freese has been with last term's Premiership runners-up since 2001.
