SOCCER – MTN Premier League rookies Matsapha United have since parted ways with their assistant coach Zwelibandzi 'Botsotso' Khoza.

This comes after a management committee meeting held last night where the decision was taken.

‘Botsotso’ was on the bench when the ‘Deep Ocean’ clashed with Mbabane Swallows in an MTN Premier League match that ended in a 1-all draw.

He also led the team while head coach Saul Chaminuka was away in his home country Zimbabwe for over two weeks.

A source within the 'Deep Blue Ocean’ camp confirmed that the coach had been sacked with immediate effect.

“I think ‘Botsotso’ failed to pass his probation given by the club when he joined them during the off-season. The team has decided to part ways with the coach because he failed to meet the target laid before him when he joined them.”

The source said he also failed to produce his qualifications on time.

“The team also could not get his qualifications on time, something that made the Management Committee to lose faith in him," the source said.

United Chief Executive Officer Victor 'Mavikane' Dlamini referred all queries to the team’s Manager Sifiso Shongwe.

When sought for comment, Shongwe confirmed the latest developments.

"We have parted ways with the assistant coach following some administrative issues. I cannot reveal much details but ‘Botsotso’ is no longer the assistant coach in the team.”
