Igesund joined SuperSport United in September 2014 and soon went on to win the Telkom Cup and secure a top 6 finish for the Club. However the team’s results this season have been below expectations with the team languishing in the bottom half of the table at the half way mark, prompting the parties to go their separate ways.
“It is a sad day for me as I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Supersport United, working with an incredibly professional club and group of people, but I honestly felt that it was in the best interests of the football club that I move on prior to the end of my contract to afford a new coach the opportunity to work with this group of players as soon as possible.
“I am not content, as I would have liked to achieve more but I am pleased to have been able to win a trophy for the club in my relatively short time in charge. This is the reality of football worldwide and I wish Supersport and the players all the best in their future endeavours,” said Igesund.
