Former TTM coach Joel Masutha has confirmed that he has parted ways with his former employers or in simple terms he has been fired from his job. TTM were sold recently to new owners who have since relocated the club to Polokwane from Venda.
Former owner Masala Mulaudzi who bought the PSL status of Bidvest Wits last season, have found the going tough in the country’s top division. It is indeed not a secret that running a professional football club in South Africa and everywhere is an expensive exercise. The club under the previous owners had challenges, from player contracts and salaries and other issues. Masala Mulaudzi have since sold the club to new owners who are also from Limpopo and it looks like the transaction has been supported by the Premier Soccer League. It must be noted that the challenges faced by the former owner of TTM are not unique and have since become the norm in South African football. Several clubs from the top division and the National first division have since gone under or have sold their status. Off course new owners when they come in, they bring with them changes and different ways of doing things. Unfortunately for Coach Joel Masutha, who guided the ship under tough conditions he now finds himself unemployed. At least Masutha left the team with a chance of competing in the Nedbank cup. He guided TTM to an impressive 1-0 win over high flying Supersport United in his last game in charge.The former Chippa United and Black Leopards Masutha revealed that he was not surprised at all by the decision to remove him at the club by the new owner Dr Abram Sello. “Obviously things have changed at the club. People who are there now are not the ones that employed me. I ‘am holding no grudges after the club was sold, something like this was bound to happen”, the former Black Leopards coach said. It looks like the new owners of the club have already found Masutha’s replacement. It has been reported that former Baroka and Black Leopards coach Dylan Kerr is going to be named the club’s new head coach.
