Gumbo linked with GU job

Struggling Premiership giants Gaborone United have denied parting ways with coach David Bright despite being strongly linked with the former coach of Township Rollers and Mochudi Centre Chiefs, Rahman Gumbo, who arrived in the country Monday night.

The Monitor :: Gumbo linked with GU job








Part of the GU management is reportedly rooting for Bright's dismissal following a poor start to the season that continued with the 2-1 loss to Notwane last Friday.

The club's top brass is reportedly unhappy with the team's run so far. GU is currently 11th on the log table, 10 points behind log leaders, Chiefs. The side has five points from its opening four games of the 2013/14 season.

However, GU secretary Hebert Letsebe laid off speculation that Bright had been fired saying he would be in charge of the team in today's game against TAFIC.

"The coach is preparing for tomorrow's game, so that is not true," he told Mmegi Sport.

But that did not stop inside sources from revealing that the club is eyeing Gumbo to replace Bright.

Coincidentally, Gumbo is expected to watch GU in action against TAFIC this afternoon. Gumbo, who is presently with top flight promotion hopefuls, Bulawayo Chiefs, said his visit to Gaborone is purely personal and has nothing to do with GU.

Before appointing Bright, GU had a sealed deal with Gumbo but lost out after he was appointed substantive Zimbabwe national team coach.

The man popularly known as 'Rush', spent three years coaching Rollers and Chiefs in Botswana.

His stint in Botswana came with mixed fortunes after he won a double with Rollers in 09/10 before moving to Chiefs the following season where he only managed a second place finish.
