Maritzburg United head coach Eric Tinkler has stated in no uncertain terms that Vincent Kobola remains his first assistant coach at the club.
The rumour was sparked by the club’s announcement that they have hired former Bafana Bafana international Delron Buckley as their new assistant coach.
Tinkler, however, has set the record straight.
“There are a lot of rumours floating around regarding Vincent Kobola and I want to make it extremely clear that Vincent Kobola is still with Maritzburg United,” said Tinkler.
“Vincent Kobola is still a very important member of the technical team and Vincent Kobola is still my first assistant.
“I don’t know where all these rumours are coming from but yeah it doesn’t exist,” Tinkler added.
Kobola, who demonstrated leadership qualities during his playing career, has without a doubt been a great addition to the Team of Choice, helping stabilise the team after an indifferent 2018/19 campaign that almost resulted in a relegation, to bounce back to finish in the top eight this term.
