Free State Stars general manager Rantsi Mokoena has confirmed that head coach Giovanni Solinas’ contract with the club has been terminated after a mutual agreement on Wednesday.
The Italian, who was in his second stint with Ea Lla Koto, leaves after a disagreement with club management and will depart with immediate effect.
Former Bloemfontein Celtic manager Serame Letsoaka has been appointed as his successor.
“The mutual termination of the head coach’s employment contract was based on the fact that the coach and the management of the team did not share the same vision, with regard to the approach for the remainder of the season, and the future and as a result both parties have decided to amicably terminate the relationship,” Mokoena said.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the head coach for his hard work throughout his employment with the club and we wish him all the best for the future.
“Furthermore, the Club would like to announce the appointment of Serame Letsoaka as the new head coach for the remainder of the season, whom we believe will guide our club to great success.”
