Moroka Swallows have elevated their assistant coach former Flames international and assistant coach Patrick Mabedi to a caretaker role for tomorrow’s match against his former club Kaizer Chiefs, and will then appoint a permanent coach after the Fifa international week.
Swallows parted ways with head coach Fani Madida last night, and according to club CEO Leon Prins his replacement will arrive next month.
“Look, we sat down and had a meeting with Fani Madida and had an amicable mutual decision to part ways,” Prins told South African on line soccer magazine KickOff.com.
“But he is a good coach and a great guy but unfortunately luck was not going his way.
“Our plan going forward is to put Patrick Mabedi assisted by other members of the technical team in charge of the match against Kaizer Chiefs. We will then bring in someone new after the Fifa international week.”
The Fifa break runs from March 23 to 31.
