Tembo was appointed as head coach of the club ahead of the 2022/23 season but Sekhukhune have only won two of their 12 games this season so far, dropping into 15th on the log, leading the club to dismiss their head coach.
“Sekhukhune United Football Club wishes to announce that is has parted ways with Coach Kaitano Tembo with immediate effect,” the club said via a statement.
“The Board and Management at the Club wishes Coach Kaitano the very best in his future endeavours.
The Club will in the meantime begin in earnest, its search for a Coach and will not make any further statements on this matter.”
CEO Mr. Jonas Malatji added: “I wish to thank Coach Kaitano for his dedication and hard work whilst at the Club. Ever the Professional that he is, and with his impeccable work ethic, the decision to part ways was an extremely difficult one. Sport in general and football in particular is result driven, and this remains true for the club that find itself in a very precarious position in the DSTV Premiership.”
Coach Kaitano, thanked The Chairman and Board for having given him an opportunity at the club. “I wish to thank the players for their dedication, the support of the Technical Team and support Staff, and wish the Club and its supporters the very best.”
Tembo spent two decades of his career at SuperSport, first as a player, then youth coach before becoming first-team assistant, then head coach. Sekhukhune was his first job at another club.
His record reads two wins, five draws and five defeats.
