German coach Ernest Middendorp, who recently signed up to coach St. George’s for three years, has asked the board to allow me to leave because I am concerned about the situation in the country and my family is confused.
The St. George’s Board of Directors decided to pay the coach two months’ salary in accordance with the terms of the contract, although the coach’s request was unfounded and unconvincing.
David Maher, who has been coaching the club for some time, has been appointed interim coach.
Meanwhile, Felele247.com.ng gathered that the former Orlando Pirates manager could be heading back South Africa to join Maritzburg club.
Following the poor start of the South African League, the Maritzburg club fired their head coach yesterday and are expected to hire the club, who have previously coached the club on three separate occasions.
According to Maritzburg club officials, Middorpor is a priority coach and his understanding of the country’s football culture has led them to turn their backs on him. Following this, Maritzburg will announce their new coach before next Friday.
The Maritzburg club are scheduled to play Super League United next Friday.
