A close source from camp broke the news that Ally’s Tigers playing in the North West ABC Motsepe League have suspended their head coach Siyabonga Mzila after their 4-0 win against Tigane United.
“It seems like it’s a personal thing because the past two games the team lost against NWU Tawana FC and Master Peace FC as the coach was not part of those games,” revealed the source.
The Chief’s Boys are currently on position 2 in Stream A with 25 points after 13 games.
When contacted, the coach indeed confirmed to FARPost that he was suspended.
“I was suspended by one of the Management members after winning 4-0 against Tigane Chelsea. The following day at training I was told I’m suspended, when I asked based on what grounds he didn’t say, but only told me that I must stay away from the club until he calls me for the Disciplinary Committee hearing. However, the club chairman was not aware of the situation,” said Mzila.
“They played 3 matches in my absence of which they lost two matches consecutively and dropped to position two. Remember, when they suspended me the team was on top of Stream A.
“The club chairman has been good and supportive of me but he spends most of his time in Swaziland. Only to be called early this week to come back and assist the team to reclaim its position but still until now nobody has told me why I was suspended.”
With three games to go, the side looks to strengthen their chances of going top of the log and booking a spot in the provincial playoffs.
