Coaching change at dysfunctional Marumo Gallants following Migne suspension


A sensational coaching change has reportedly taken place at DStv Premiership side Marumo Gallants following the suspension of Sebastien Migne.

David Mathebula and Mpho Maleka have once again taken over the coaching reigns at Marumo Gallants FC.

The duo has sensationally returned as co-caretaker coaches following the reported suspension of Sebastien Migne this week.

The somewhat unknown Frenchman arrived at the Limpopo club in July ahead of the 2021/2022 DStv Premiership campaign having previously coached in countries such as Congo, Kenya and Equatorial Guinea.

According to insiders at the club, Migne has failed to report for training for the past three days.

It is also believed that the club management is not happy with the performance of the team so far this season.

Mathebula and Maleka have now reportedly taken over first-team duties for a second time. with the duo previously playing a huge role in the club's Nedbank Cup triumph last season.

Gallants are still without a win in their opening five league matches played so far.

Meanwhile Migne's assistant coach Belgium-born Jean-Francois Luscuito revealed the full extent of the dysfunction at the club, after putting to an end a short two-month stay.

"It was one hell of a difficult place to work because the conditions were just not right in producing results for a professional club," Loscuito said.

"I'm owed money as we speak because I paid for the squad's Covid-19 tests from my own pocket after the chairman said he has no money as we entered Cameroon after the game in Equatorial Guinea and I still haven't been reimbursed my money.

"I also worked for over half the month of September, but I haven't been paid the pro-rata equivalent. There are way too many problems at that club most of which can be easily avoided," Loscuito said in a damning report.

Marumo's troubles have transferred to the pitch where the club are rooted to the foot of the DStv Premiership standings, yet to manage a win in their opening five matches.
