For the past couple of seasons Black Leopards, has always been relegation candidates. Last season they survived by winning the promotion-relegation playoffs.
This season the Limpopo bease side finally made its way back to the GladAfrica Championship after suffering automatic relegation. As they finished rock bottom on the Log in a campaign where they only 15 matches out of 30 matches.
Tiklas Thutlwa had a excellent game against Kaizer Chiefs, when he netted a brace in the club 2-1 win to raise the hopes of surviving relegation. He had hoped he will have a long stay in the DSTV Premiership. After being promoted from development, the midfield says the constant change of coaches for the team led to the disappointing season.
The changing of coaches by the club did not help the team. I can't think of anything else i think the fact that we made many coaching changes and, they had different cultures trying different things didn't help. I think we tried and pushed we didn't expect to go down. But that doesn't change anything because the fact is we are out, Thutlwa told Soccer-laduma.
Of all the coaches who coached black leopards last season the 22-year Old thinks, Dylan Kerr should not have been fired. He also says that Kerr did work well with Lehlohonolo Seema.
Dylan Kerr was you good coach for us and all of us were happy with him. We were always looking forward to training under him, because he made us feel good we were disappointed when he left. I don't think he worked well with Seema because he will call us to do set up drills and skills but that one Seema would not agree.
Thutlwa says coaches Mogezi Bobe and Morgan Shivambu, should have been put in immediately after kerr left the team, than continuing with Seema. He says the team could have even finished in the top eight.
I did not feel any happiness under Seema, he is the one who told me to go and play in the DSTV Diski Challenge i didn't want to ask him why. He has his favorites that's why i am saying i enjoyed playing under coach Dylan, Bobe and coach Morgan because they don't save favorites, Thutlwa added.
