Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila have placed new coach Heric Vladislav on special leave.
Heric arrived at TTM in mid-December and was mandated to take the team to the promotion playoff places.
"The coach has been placed on paid special leave while the club is busy sorting out its internal matters," communication manager Tshidino Ndou tells KickOff.com.
"Mr Vladislav has just returned from his responsibility leave he requested as he wanted to go back home to check on his father, who is ill.
"He was on the bench when TTM lost to JDR last Saturday. This time the club placed him on special leave with immediate effect, until further notice."
Fourth-placed TTM can still achieve that as they are only two points behind third-placed Uthongathi with six matches remaining.
In 11 matches since taking over Heric has led the team to six wins, four losses and one draw.
The Serbian is the third coach TTM have used this season following former Orlando Pirates assistant coach Momcilo Medic and Dutchman Errol Akpay.
