Former Orlando Pirates coach retires


Orlando Pirates legend and former assistant coach Teboho Moloi has revealed all on his decision to vacate his position as head coach of Lesotho side Linare FC.

Moloi revealed that he has been presented with a lucrative opportunity by an unknown company that was difficult to refuse.

"There's a company I was working for, not on a full-time basis, as an ambassador," Moloi tells KickOff.

"The company now requires me on a full-time basis. Whereby travelling and going all over the continent might take up my time from overseeing training sessions, and matchdays.

"So I used to have a relationship with the team, only coming once in a week, maybe a day before the game, and return home.

"But as times went on I became permanently involved with the day to day running of the team.

"So I asked the team if they can let me go do something different from football.

"People are saying I have left the team because I have a job offer here in South Africa, No!

"It is something very far from football like we always say, players should have something to fall back on.

"So the company has taken me on a full-time basis, where I will be doing inductions.

"But I will still be involved with Linare at an advisory level. Do I see myself being the head coach of any of the big teams? Honestly speaking, no!

"Do I see myself being a coach of a national team? No!

"The motivational talks, development programs, helping someone who wants advice on coaching courses, yes I can do that.

"But to coach a PSL team in South Africa, no thank you very much. Here's a job in the NFD, no thank you very much.

"As much as I've retired from playing football prematurely, I'm also retiring from coaching prematurely.

"You know if into ayivumi, Ayivumi. If something doesn't allow you, let it go.

"I won't divulge the name of the company I'm going to but I will tell you once I have my foot up and running."
