Sekhukhune Confirm Brakkies Exit

Sekhukhune United have officially confirmed Brandon Truter’s exit from the club.

While the news was only made official on Wednesday, it has been an open secret that Truter and goalkeeper coach Johannes Abselom had left the club, with the pair absent from Sekhukhune’s technical team for their past two fixtures.

The statement released by the club confirmed their exits, and that Macdonald Makhubedu would be interim coach. Makhubedu has been on the bench for the past two games, as Sekhukhune lost to Orlando Pirates before bouncing back to beat SuperSport United.

“The club would like to confirm that it has parted ways with Head Coach Brandon Truter,” the statement read.

“Given the highly competitive environment that the Premier Soccer League has become, coupled with the fact that getting positive results has become a major safeguard, the Club has decided that the recent results have not reinforced this notion and thus the need to part ways with Coach ‘Brakkies.

“The Club would also like to confirm that it has released Goalkeeper Coach Hannes Absalom.
The duo left with immediate effect and the Club wishes to express its heartfelt appreciation for their dedication and hard work during their time with ‘Babina Noko’.

“Assistant Coach Macdonald Makhubedu assumed the role of Head Coach on an interim basis as the club prepares for an interesting assignment, away against RS Berkane in the Group Stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.

“This match will be held at the Stade Municipal de Bon in Berkane, Morocco on Sunday, 26th November at 21:00 SAST.”
