Dan Malesela fired by TS Galaxy after a weak start

The team that is quickly making a name for itself in the DStv Premiership, TS Galaxy have confirmed that they have officially fired head coach Dan ‘Dance’ Malesela with immediate effect after a string of poor results in the last six Dstv Premiership matches.

The soccer team and Malesela parted ways after they dropped points for a sixth consecutive game when they lost 3 – 2 against Cape Town City on Saturday. “TS Galaxy FC has parted ways with coach, Dan Malesela following a string of poor results which saw the club failing to win a match in the last six Dstv Premiership matches.” a club statement read.

“The decision to part ways with Coach Dan was not an easy one as he has a rich history with our club. Unfortunately, football is a result driven business and decisions such as this can only be based on results than history,” Club boss Tim Sukazi said.

“Coach Dan will always be highly regarded at our club and his name will remain well documented in our history books. Coach Zipho will be our Head Coach in the interim. All I can do is to wish him well because he deserves the opportunity to assume the TS Galaxy Head Coaching role on a permanent basis but only time will tell. He is a very good Coach whom I believe has the potential that is yet to be realised at the top level of the game.

“Coach Zipho will be assisted by Coach Esau Mtsweni who has been serving on the same role for quite some time. We believe there is good synergy between the two Coaches which could bring success to our Club.”

Early reports suggest that TS Galaxy will be looking at both Eric Tinkler and Owen Da Gama as Malesela’s long-term replacement. Galaxy next play Baroka FC on 05 January 2021.
