Black Leopards head coach Lionel Soccoia has become the third coach in the PSL to be fired this week.

On Monday, Chippa United and AmaZulu announced they had parted ways with their coaches, Clinton Larsen and Cavin Johnson, respectively.

Leopards have lost three of their opening five matches, only winning one and drawing one, which clearly the Lidoda Duvha management didn’t find amusing at all.

The club is currently sitting on 12th position with four points.

Earlier, Soccoia admitted that he was feeling pressure in the hot seat with the inconsistent results by his side.

Leopards were defeated 2-0 by Baroka FC in the Absa Premiership at home on Sunday, a result that saw them remain in 12th place on the log with four points from five matches.

This was Leopards’ second derby loss in Thohoyandou this season and a third overall defeat this term.

The coach maintained there is no excuse for denting Lidoda Duvha’s record against Bakgaga. However, he cited the side’s inactivity during the domestic cup and international breaks as some of the contributors to yesterday’s loss.
