Johannesburg - Bloemfontein Celtic
CEO Khumbulani Konco has guaranteed that Ernst Middendorp's job is safe despite
the club's turbulent start to the campaign.
SuperSport ease past Celtic
Phunya Sele Sele have not won any of their last three
outings in the league, and are now flirting dangerously with the relegation
zone after Sunday's 3-0 loss against SuperSport United.
However, according to Konco, the Bloemfontein outfit are not
considering making changes to their technical team, and has rallied the club's
supporters to continue backing their team instead.
"It is still very early in the season and talk about
the coach (being fired) is not true," Konco is quoted as saying by the Sowetan.
"As a club, we are rallying behind the coach and it is
only a matter of time before we turn things around.
"We are making a plea to our supporters to continue
supporting us. In these difficult times, we need them now more than ever
The CEO added that they are “hopeful” that in the
upcoming games they will start picking up three points.
"It is an open secret that we have already played the
big three teams (Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns) and it
was always going to be difficult.
"We are not making any excuses because this is a
competitive league, but it is not easy playing against them. Soon, though, we
will turn the corner."
Celtics next game is in the Telkom Knockout Challenge when
they take on AmaZulu on Saturday, October 4 at 20:15.
