THE coaching merry-go round in the Vodacom Premier League is in full swing with the changing and chopping of coaches coming thick and fast.

Linare on Thursday announced the departure of Motebang Makhetha as their coach after just four matches in charge of Tse Tala.

According to reports coming from Leribe, the club will re-appoint Teboho Moloi as its head coach, having recently left the position to take another job in South Africa.

During his brief stint at Linare, Makhetha managed three draws and lost once.

Defending League champions Bantu have also announced that the club has parted ways with Thabo Tsutsulupa after just four games in charge of the Mafeteng-based outfit.

Tsutsulupa had replaced league winning coach, Bob Mafoso who failed to agree on a new deal with Bantu and left the club early in January.

A Matšo Matebele’s Communication and Marketing Manager, Bokang Phasumane, has confirmed that they parted ways with the former Kaizer Chiefs development coach, who had been placed on suspension after a deadlock with the management of the club.

The trio of former players in Dlomo Monaphathi, Thapelo Mokhehle and Liteboho Mokhesi oversaw the team during Tsutsulupa’s suspension.

The club has since announced the appointment of another South African, former Free State Stars captain, Teboho Tsiu as its new coach.

Tsiu previously served Bantu as the assistant coach under James Madidilane and Bob Mafoso.
