Baroka FC’s management is said to be divided over keeping Kgoloko Thobejane as the club’s head coach, with some members eager to bring former Al-Ahly assistant coach Cavin Johnson on board to help the club avoid relegation survive, a source at the Limpopo-based outfit has revealed.
Baroka is currently bottom of the table after a string of poor results from the start of the season, with Thobejane being returned to the senior team to replace Matsemela Thoka, but Thobejane was unable to steer the Bakgaga ship in the right direction.
According to the insider, the village offices of Baroka are not doing well and the idea of the club that plays in GladAfrica does not sit well with the management.
“I’m not sure if anyone has spoken to Coach Cavin yet, but according to the management, he is someone who can save the team from this disaster (relegation). Coach Kgoloko doesn’t seem like someone who knows what he’s doing at the moment.
“I think he can see it too, because since he came back, not much has changed in the team’s results. Some people at the club believe there is still some time to try and save the status of the team, only there are others who really believe in coach Thobejane’s work, I think they are just loyal to him because he has been with the team from the start,” said the source.
Johnson, who previously coached at Platinum Stars and SuperSport United, has been without a coaching job since leaving Al-Ahly last year.
