Cape Town - Platinum
Stars coach Allan Freese will have a clearer idea on what his future at the
club will be, when he meets with the administration on Monday.

Freese was placed on special leave by the club earlier this
month, with the view to conducting an internal performance review, to establish
if it was in the club's best interests to retain the coach's services for the
remainder of the season and beyond.
Willem Jackson has temporarily taken over the reins at the
club until this process if finalised.
"The coach will now meet with management on Monday
because the meeting was moved from Thursday," Platinum Stars football
manager Senzo Mazingiza told KickOff.
"Essentially, the meeting is about discussing the way
forward and looking at ways of how the team can move forward. Whether these
talks will decide on the coach staying with us or leaving is not something that
we will discuss," added a tight-lipped Mazingiza.
The public perception has been that Freese's career at
Platinum Stars was over and that the leadership at the club had already made
plans to replace him.
Mazingiza has dismissed such suggestions as being nothing
more than pure speculation at this juncture.
"There is an impression that has already been created
in the media that the coach has already been relieved of his duties. This is
not the position that the club has taken," said Mazingiza.
