The former Orlando Pirates star midfielder had been in charge of Linare for over a year.
According to a press statement released by Tse-Tala, Moloi will lead the club for the last time when they face Bantu in the Vodacom Premier League catch up likely to be played this coming weekend.
The South African mentor who has coached SA sides such as Orlando Pirates and Chippa United before joining Linare had previously shown that his wish was to bring the glory days back at the Hlotse-based outfit.
This, after the team had gone over three decades without winning the league title.
“The management of Linare and the head coach of the club have reached an agreement to amicably terminate the contract of employment after long negotiations,” the statement said.
“The decision was amicable between the two parties after Moloi was offered another job in his home country (South Africa) and this would make it difficult for him to continue with his role as the coach on the day-to-day basis.”
The statement further stated that Linare would start searching for a new coach right away.
“Expectations are that Mr Moloi will lead the club for the last time in the match against Bantu if the league body re-fixtures them for this coming Saturday,” the club also said.

“Coach Moloi leaves the club with a heavy heart based on the progress made since he took over the reins and in the same way, Linare are saddened to part ways with the coach looking at what he brought to the club and we wish him well in his future endeavours.
“The club begins the hunt for the new coach right away and an announcement will be made once the process has been completed,” the statement concluded.
Linare’s Vodacom Premier League match against Bantu FC that was scheduled for this past Sunday at LCS Football Ground was cancelled due to heavy rains and unplayable pitch. The two clubs will now wait for the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) to re-schedule their meeting.
