Black Leopards Club Director Tshifhiwa Thidiela says Ivan Manniert’s failure to get along with players is among the reasons they parted ways with him.

Manniert has been sacked, just two months after his appointment. He had replaced Jean Francis Luscioto.

Thidiela says they will appoint a new coach soon.

“Players were beginning to revolt. They were not taking instructions from the coach. They were also not coping with the methods that he was utilising and also from the office. He was obviously to give us reports of an overview of what is happening in the field of play. In no uncertain terms, he mentioned he will be not be able to do that and felt that for us, if we don’t know what is happening on the field, we are working blind.”
