TS Galaxy have parted ways with Dan Malesela after seven games in the DSTV Premiership season.
The club announced the decision on Sunday evening, a day after their 3-2 loss to Cape Town City, with Galaxy sitting in 12th position on the log.
Zipho Dlangalala will take over on an interim basis, and will be assisted by Esau Mtsweni.
“The decision to part ways with Coach Dan was not an easy one as he has a rich history with our club,” Tim Sukazi told the club’s website.
“Unfortunately, football is a result driven business and decisions such as this can only be based on results than history. Coach Dan will always be highly regarded at our club and his name will remain well documented in our history books.”
Malesela returned to the club after Sukazi purchased the Highlands Park franchise. He had left the club earlier in 2020, after a poor season in the Glad Africa Championship, and an early exit from the Nedbank Cup, the cup he won with the team in 2018/2019.
“Coach Zipho will be our Head Coach in the interim. All I can do is to wish him well because he deserves the opportunity to assume the Head Coaching role on a permanent basis but only time will tell. He is a very good Coach whom I believe has the potential that is yet to be realised at the top level of the game. Coach Zipho will be assisted by Coach Esau Mtsweni who has been serving on the same role for quite some time. We believe there is good synergy between the two Coaches which could bring success to our Club.” .
