Cape Town - The Boland Cavaliers have confirmed the resignation of director of rugby Alan Zondagh, who quit his position last week.
Zondagh said political interference from the union’s board was a reason for his departure.
Zondagh was appointed in January 2016, but according to the statement released by the Boland Rugby Union "could no longer hold the position".
"His appointment came after extensive negotiations between him and the Boland Rugby Union, especially about his role and function as a director of rugby and per se about his relationship with management, executive council and board of directors," the statement read.
Boland said they needed to comply with transformation targets as well as uplifting the local community through picking local talent which Zondagh was apparently not keen to abide by.
"A serious point of contention in our deliberations was the need to stick to transformation targets and to work to a situation where the geographical equity targets would not be an issue once Boland teams are selected.
"We reluctantly, but respectfully parted ways with Mr Zondagh and trust that his expertise and foresight would remain available for rugby in our region."
Meanwhile, it was also confirmed on Tuesday that Boland head coach Brent Janse van Rensburg had quit his role.
