Motsoaneng: I can’t hire myself


BCM Stars coach Tshepo Motsoaneng is hoping to coach in the professional leagues, after qualifying for ABC Motsepe League national play-offs four times on the trot.

The former Santos goalkeeper believes he is ready to deal with the pressure of coaching either in the GladAfrica Championship or DStv Premiership.

Motsoaneng last coached Bizana Pondo Chiefs in the GladAfrica Championship, where he was released on his contract due to poor results.

He revealed to FARPost that he would love to work with a brave chairman, who will give him a technical team that will allow him to do his job.

“It’s not easy because you are not hiring yourself, we’ll keep on working hard until something comes up,” he said.

“Unfortunately I can’t hire myself, yes I went up to GladAfrica Championship (with Bizana Pondo Chiefs), yes I went up to Chippa (United) to be the first assistant coach to Joel Masutha.

“I just need a brave chairman to work with, maybe that chairman will be the first to see that I can work. With a technical team that will afford me space to work without interference, that’s how I work,” Motsoaneng continued.

“So hopefully this is my last season in the ABC Motsepe League, I need to allow other coaches an opportunity to work. I have been here for too long so I need to work hard.

“Chairmen of the clubs are not easy to impress, so I need to go up there and deliver.”
