Tembo, Supersport part ways

By ZBC Reporter

FORMER Dynamos and Warriors defender Kaitano Tembo has left South African top-flight side Supersport where he was head coach.

Tembo has been a long-time servant of the club, having played for Supersport and served as assistant to several coaches before he was appointed head coach in 2018.

The former Dynamos and Warriors centre back was also in charge of the club’s development side before he was elevated to the senior team.

The Pretoria-based club lifted the MTN8 Cup in 2019 under the stewardship of Tembo and were perennial top six challengers in the league during his time at the club.

His last match in charge was a 3-2 loss at the hands of lower league side, Tshakuma FC in the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals.

He leaves Supersport eighth on the log, with 31 points from 24 games just six games to go before the end of the season.

Former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Andre Arendse, who was Tembo’s assistant, has since been named caretaker coach for the remainder of the season.

Meanwhile, back home the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League will take a breather during the Easter holidays, with matches set to resume on the 23rd of this month.

The Uhuru Cup clash between perennial rivals, Highlanders and Dynamos at Barbourfields Stadium on Monday will be the highlight of the long weekend.
