Township Rollers’ patience is running thin on Coach Tomas Trucha. The club is reported to be on the verge of sacking the former Orapa United mentor for poor performance.
It is said the Czech Republican born gaffer has dangerously lost control of the dressing room where his team is deeply divided. It is reported that his latest decision to sideline two of Rollers fan favorite players has actually complicated his stay as the head coach. Sources at Rollers state that midfield dynamo Mothusi Cooper- who has indiscipline issues together with Edwin Moalosi have all broken ranks with the coach.
This has also affected other players within Rollers camp who apparently enjoy playing alongside Cooper and Moalosi. The coach’s decision to sideline Moalosi has even forced the player to write a resignation letter, sources claim. It is not yet clear if Rollers management has received Moalosi’s letter, but it is maintained that the player showed intentions to resign sometime last month. Sources also mention that Rollers is ready to sack Trucha and appoint a new gaffer before end of November.
