Mabrano gives up on coach

First Division side, Stonebreakers have given up on their coach Clement Chimimba. The Zimbabwean tactician has been missing in action ever since he was given a two-week leave last month. He did not return to the club after the expiry of the leave period. He was granted time off to attend to family matters in Zimbabwe. Team manager Batsho Dubani said they are not going to accept Chimimba back and they are not looking for a new coach now. "We will wait until the end of the current season," he said. He added that to get a new coach at this stage of the league will complicate matters, as the team is not doing well.

He explained that the team would continue under the tutelage of assistant coach Rogers Raukebekwa and captain Robert Oagile. When Chimimba went on leave, reports emerged that he had been sacked but Stonebreakers issued a denial. Dubani said they had no intention of sacking the coach even though he was not doing well. The performance of the Letlhakane side slumped during the Chimimba era and now Mabrano need to pull up their socks to dodge the relegation axe. They currently are languishing in the relegation zone. However, Dubani is optimistic that his team will finish the league in a good position. He dismissed allegations that Mabrano may be campaigning in district football next season.

He said they would fight hard to maintain their position in the league. "We will try to win all the home games," he told Mmegi Sport. He added that the team is not doing well because they lost many experienced players. He pointed out that they currently have only four veterans.
