Axe falls on Absa Premiership coaches
by SAVIOUS KWINIKA
JOHANNESBURG – A number coaches have lost their jobs as the coaching merry-go-round reaches full throttle in the South African Premiership.
With the campaign still to reach the halfway stage, Moroka Swallows’ Zeca Marques has become the latest to bite the dust after a string of poor results.
The early expulsion of coaches signifies that local Premiership teams need nothing short of early success.
To date, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs have only played eight matches out of the total 30 games for the season.
Before Marquez, the axe had already claimed the scalp of Craig Rosslee (AmaZulu), Bobbie Solomons (Polokwane City), Kosta Papic (Chippa United), Caavin Johnson (Supersport United).
More heads are expected to role as the season progresses.
Judging from the current form of play, it appears the next victims will be Platinum Stars, University of Pretoria as well as the acting coach form Polokwane City.
While clubs could justify their early actions to expel poor performing coaches, it also emerged that the same clubs did not have fat cheques to acquire their preferred players during off season.
Some clubs are still relying upon old players yet the market is full of young and capable players across the country.
It therefore remains to be seen, which clubs would pull the trigger.
