The 40-year-old South African tactician’s technical team was dismantled and followed him on his departure. As Callies wanted new faces at the helm that will come with resolutions within the club. Masutha’s position will be temporally filled by the former Kaizer Chiefs striker Edwin Sitayitayi as the club is still looking for a permanent mentor. “The club also confirms [the] departure of technical team that includes, Steven Macfarlane, Bafana Nhlapo, Mpho Maruping, Given Banda operations manager Benedictus Mogotsi and team manager Mandla Mabena… Meanwhile, the former Kaizer Chiefs and Callies striker Edwin Sitayitayi is the caretaker coach until further notice,” read the Callies official statement.

Malada wished them the best in their future endeavours as the club will now have to rebuild their technical team. The Chairman revealed that Masutha had to leave due to a string of poor results. “Yes, coach Masutha has resigned and we accepted that, but he’s a good coach, unfortunately, results were not coming as expected which I think he realised it hence he decided to reign… We appreciate having worked with him. We would also like to thank the other technical team members for their dedication and wish everyone all the best in their careers,” said Malada speaking to the media.
