Tovey quits as Thanda coach
Johannesburg - Neil Tovey has reportedly left Thanda Royal Zulu after failing to agree terms on his proposed new contract.
Amabhubesi were recently rocked by the passing of co-owner
Orpheus Panayiotou, who had been financially backing the club since
As a result the Benoni-based outfit have taken a huge financial
hit, with Tovey unable to accept the offer posed to him by the club.
Mlungisi Ngubane has since been appointed TRZ head coach, while
recently departed general manager Peter Koutroulis has also been
replaced by Thabani Gumede.
Tovey's decision to leave the National First Division outfit
could pave the way for an approach from the South African Football
Association, who are still to appoint a technical director to new Bafana
Bafana coach Gordon Igesund.
