Tasc in turmoil?

It is reported that all is not well at the Fransictown-based side, TASC. Information reaching Sunday Standard is that head coach, Tazha Moleofhi, and his assistant, Teenage Mpote, are on their way out. According, Moleofhi is not happy with his conditions of service and will be leaving soon.

“If you can recall well, Moleofhi was whisked away from Great North Tigers early this year to coach TASC.

That time TASC were doing well under Mpote. Since the army administers the team and Moleofhi is an army man, there was no way he could say no.

But upon resuming his duties he wanted certain things to be done, but up to now, nothing has been done and he is controlled like a kid,” said the source.

The source also said, Moleofhi is accused of not putting the interests of the team at heart.

It is not yet clear why Mpote is leaving but it is understood that Mpote is also not happy with the conditions of service at the club.

The source also expressed disappointment saying both Mpote and Moleofhi served the team with loyalty.

TASC is now reported to be after the services of their former player/coach, Stanley Mwaanga.

Mwaanga is reported to be their first preference because he is currently not attached to any yet he achieved what many coaches failed to do.

When contacted for a comment, Moleofhi referred all enquiries to the team manager, Motshereganye Leshongwane.

“There is nothing I can say at this point in time, and the person who can give you an official comment is the team manager,” he said.

Mpote on the other hand was also not in a position to comment.

Efforts to get hold of Leshongwane were futile at time of going to press.

Mwaanga expressed shock when Sunday Standard contacted him. He said no body has officially approached him for a job.

“No body has ever come to me to coach any team and that is news to me. As I am talking to you now, TASC is the fifth team the media links me to but I have never been approached. What is just being said is not the truth,” he said.

Mwaanga played for TASC from 1988 to 1994.
