A baptism of fire and a firing from one’s spot is something a coach is most likely to experience at some point in their career. How it happens and how it is received is left to the coach and management of the club he works for.
Well, former footballer Reneilwe ‘Yeye’ Letsholonyane has just had his share of this reality with him losing his place as coach of the Amazulu Reserve team. The former Kaizer Chiefs star spent over a year with the club before losing his position as head coach.
Usually, coaches are fired because of unsatisfactory results. And that was what was also given as the reason for relieving him of his job at Amazulu.
In a statement, the club confirmed the end of its relationship with Yeye, pointing out that in his one year with Amazulu, he made substantial contributions to the club. However, it wasn’t enough – certainly, the club didn’t get the result it was seeking.
So the decision was made to terminate his contract. With this decision, he joins the league of coaches out in the cold and looking to get hitched to a new club. At the time of writing, Yeye had yet to comment on his forced exit from the club.
