JOHANNESBURG – Where will Joel Masutha go? Chances are into oblivion, to be honest, or maybe back into the trenches of the lower divisions after just three and a half months in the Premier League.
Masutha was asked to resign from his post as Black Leopards coach on Monday morning by chairman David Thidiela as results in the league worsened, sending a signal to management that they could be staring relegation in the face before Christmas.
In less than seven days, Lidoda Duvha had suffered back-to-back defeats in away matches to Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City.
Thidiela ran out of patience and Masutha was told to clear his locker this week, but whether he was offered another role within the club is unclear.
For the coach, Leopards is his home, having returned there in December to help steady the ship.
