PSL : Tebogo Moloi to meet Orlando Pirates Chairman
Orlando Pirates assistance Coach Tebogo Moloi will meet with the Chairman Irvin Khoza very soon to discuss his future with the team
This was announced at the same press conference on April 7, 2016 were Orlando Pirates Chairman Irvin Khoza made long-time defender Siyabonga Sangweni’s retirement public.
Moloi spent most of his playing career at Pirates as both a player and amongst the technical staff.
Moloi has served under former Orlando Pirates Coaches like Eric Tinkler, Vladimir Vermezovic, Roger de Sa, Augusto Palacios, Julio Leal, Milutin Sredojevic and Kosta Papic.
Apart from been an assistance to various coaches, he was a caretaker coach during the 2005-06 season after the departure of Papic.
At that time the club chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza said:
“The club has granted our assistant coach an extended leave to deal with personal issues, he is still a member and an employee of Orlando Pirates Football Club.”
“He has some challenges that he is dealing with so we thought that it is very important that he must concentrate on resolving those issues and when he is ready, he will re-join the team. In his position, the technical team will apportion responsibilities.”
Floyd Mbele, Orlando Pirates’ administrative said Moloi is set to return to duty in the next two weeks‚ and is scheduled to have a meeting with Khoza when he does.
“I think in the next week or two we will be able to have an update on Moloi, he should be back by then‚” Mbele said.
“He’s still on leave. He did come back at one stage to give an update on the personal matter that he was busy with.
“I think he would need to meet the chairman in the next week or two to decide his role going forward. There is a meeting scheduled.”
It’s still unclear what were those personal issues that prevented Tebogo Moloi for executing his duties and warranted him extended leave.
