Former Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp is rumoured to be on his way to Maritzburg United.
The Team of Choice parted ways with Eric Tinkler after five losses in five games this season including an MTN8 quarter final.
Assistant coach Delron Buckley will take charge of the team for their Dstv Premiership clash with SuperSport United on Friday.
But Middendorp, who only recently signed a three-year deal with Ethiopian side Saint George SC, has left the club after just one month.
A club statement read: "Coach Ernst Middendorp has left St George.
"The German coach was contracted to train St George for three years."
"Maahier Davids, who was training the club for a while, has been working as a temporary coach."
Middendorp has coached a number of teams in South Africa including Bloemfontein Celtic, Chippa United, Free State Stars, Chiefs and Maritzburg in two previous spells.
He left Amakhosi last season after failing to guide the side to the Premiership title.
