JOHANNESBURG – Eric Tinkler described the coaching carnage that took place on Monday last week as “absurd.”
Both AmaZulu and Chippa United fired their coaches, Cavin Johnson and Clinton Larsen, respectively, on Monday.
Black Leopards joined along in sacking Lionel Soccoia, who was appointed in June this year. Tinkler is staring at the guillotine after Maritzburg United’s bad start. The Team of Choice has collected just two points from five matches.
“We are always worried about our future,” Tinkler said. “In South Africa, you have to worry about your future. That’s the nature of the game. I think it’s become absurd (the firing of coaches). I can’t say much because now I will get into trouble if I say something.”
Tinkler made a good impression last season. He rescued the Team of Choice, when they looked certain to be relegated. The former Bafana Bafana hard-man led the team to a 15th place finish.
