Sakala still with Aces, not Eagles


Sakala, along with former Kaizer Chiefs defender Lefa Gqosha, were believed to be taking over the reins of the NFD club following the departure of Duncan Lechesa last month.

However, Sakala was spotted at Tshwane's Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday when Aces drew 0-0 with Mamelodi Sundowns in the League.

When contacted for clarity, Eagles manager Richard Makhoba would only say that John Tlale is currently overseeing first team matters.

"I am not able to talk about the issue of Sakala. We will release a statement," Makhoba tells

"John Tlale remains in charge assisted by Jomo Ntuli and Khabo Zondo as technical director."
