Kinnah: Sacked for poor start to the season

Football has very much become a “what have you done for me lately” sport and no matter what Kinnah did in the past, it did not count to Free State Stars recent dip of form.

Stars’ first loss was at home against Mpumalanga Black Aces, going down 1-0 at Goble Park on August 8.

That was followed by a 4-0 drubbing by Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on August 22.

On Wednesday, they lost 2-1 to Ajax Cape Town at Athlone Stadium, which triggered manaement’s decision to sack Kinnah.

According to South Africa’s Kickoff news, the former Malawi national team coach has beenreplaced him with Ernst Middendorp, a German.

“Kinnah is fired and Middendorp is taking over,” Kickoff quoted an named source/

Middendorp, an ex-Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic boss, was formerly on the books of Chippa United last season.

    Things r turning against Kinna coz of the way he treated his first wife in public. He needs to apologise so that things can go well again. Look he has lost those annointed ideas of how to make the team win. Jus some free advice use it or leave it!

  39. mtumbuka1 says:

    It’s been long overdue I reckon. The last time I checked, free state stars was the team better known for fighting relegation every season and they play shit soccer. The coach is useless let him go to Malawi and help steal government money ( cashgate)…kak!
