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.
