Leopards sack Losciuto

Losciuto joined Leopards last season after he was recommended by Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael and helped Lidoda Duvha qualify for the PSL promotion play-offs.

However, Leopards are now in 13th place after 10 matches and they have registered only two victories this term. It's been a slow start and the club has lost patience with the coach.

According to a source close to Lidodo Duvha, the Belgian coach has been shown the door and will be replaced by Ivan Minnaert.

"Jean Losciuto has been fired," said the source close to both the club and the coach.

"The results were not good and the club had no choice but to fire him.

"Ivan is expected to join the club as the new coach," he added.

Losciuto is the second coach to be shown the door this week in the National First Division after Mthatha Bucks parted ways with Ian Palmer.
