Lota gets the chop


Lota, who did a fantastic job of helping the Durban-based club to survive relegation last season via the Platinum playoffs, has been absent from the teams’ training session.

“Dennis did okay for us in the past, but now he is struggling and that is why we have placed him on transfer,” the 1996 Afcon-winning coach says.

“He could not match the high pace and was not delivering in terms of expectations.

“The competition in our strike force is very high, so the technical team felt it is best to let him go. Hopefully, he can find a club elsewhere,” Barker adds.
