Club parts ways

2016-02-10 06:00

MPUMALANGA BLACK ACES have parted ways with coach, Jacob Sakala, and team manager, Benedictus Mogotsi.

Aces said that financial reasons had forced them to release the pair.

“Aces confirms that the employment of certain staff members has been terminated for no fault reasons resulting from the difficult econo­mic circumstances facing South African businesses,” the club said in a statement.

“Aces takes this opportunity to thank Benedictus (Thethe) Mogotsi and Jacob Sakala in particular for the part they have played at the club and to wish them well for the future.

“Mogotsi and Sakala have thanked the ma­nagement of Aces for the opportunity to play a role at the club and for the manner in which the process had been approached and dealt with.

Sakala pre­viously worked as a scout and assisted head, coach Muhsin Ertugral.

The Zambian served as AmaZayoni’s caretaker boss when Clive Barker was reassigned to the club’s development structures in mid-March last season.

Sakala oversaw three wins, five draws and two defeats in his ten games in charge.
