‘Meat Boys’ chop their coaches

The firing of coaches by Premier League teams has gained momentum in this past week.
The teams that have been at the fore front are the Francistown-based Meat boys who fired Maxwell Moyo last week and another ‘Meat Boys’ team, Lobatse-based side, BMC, which is reported to have joined the fray. Information reaching Sunday Standard is that BMC fired Enos Mmesi on Friday.

Mmesi took over from Zambian Kaizer Kalambo who was fired in the middle of the first round.

Mmesi led BMC in 11 matches, winning five, losing four and drawing two. Considering that Mmesi is an up and coming local coach, one would have thought they would keep and groom him or let him be an understudy to anyone they would rope in.

But the surprise sacking has to be that of Moyo who had done exceptionally well since assuming the reigns last season. He is sacked at a time when Ecco City are on the third spot in the league.
Atshele Molapi is expected to temporarily take charge at Ecco City Green while BMC are reported to be courting Rapelang Tsatsilebe.

The competition in the Premier League has become so intense at this juncture because only a few matches are left before the end of the league. It is the time when teams fight for honours while others fight to avoid relegation and will do anything to obtain maximum points.
