Official: Marumo Gallants release head coach Sebastien Minge


Marumo Gallants have confirmed that they have released head coach Sebastien Migne with immediate effect. 

The DStv Premiership outfit have confirmed that the head coach was relieved of his duties after an incident of insubordination towards the club's technical director Harris Choeu ahead of their clash with Golden Arrows.

Gallants were unbale to secure a win under Minge in the league but they did advance to the second preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup.


Following a disciplinary hearing last Thursday, the 7th October 2021, Marumo Gallants FC dismissed Sebastien Minge, head coach on Sunday. Minge pleaded guilty for insubordination and using abusive language towards Technical Director, Harris Choeu. The incident happened in public, and in the presence of players and the technical team at OR Tambo International airport on a trip to Durban last weekend to play against Golden Arrows.

Minge started working for The Gallants on 1 July 2021. “As a coach his duty is to instil discipline to the team. The club followed correct disciplinary procedure and the decision to release him was made. It is unfortunate that Sebastien had to be dismissed especially at a crucial time when we are pushing to remain in the league and advance in CAF. As management we cannot go against what the DC has decided but to wish Sebastien well in his future endeavours”, says Chairman Abram Sello.

Marumo Gallants FC will be facing AS Vita from the DRC this coming Friday the 15 October 2 021 in Polokwane on a second round of CAF. Despite the current developments, the Friday match will go ahead, and the club is working hard to ensure that all CAF requirements are met including having a qualified coach. The club maintains that there is no crisis and training continue as scheduled and the technical team and players are looking forward to the next games.
