Botswana Premier League (BPL) side Orapa United have refuted reports stating that the club has parted ways with coach Madinda Ndlovu.
The Ostriches have been inconsistent in the BTC Premiership this season having recorded three wins, two defeats and three defeats.
Kabo William, Orapa's public relations officer, told Mmegi that they held a meeting with Ndlovu, to give the trainer some time to reflect on the current situation.
“No, we have not parted ways with the coach. We were not pleased at how the coach was responding to the current state of affairs in the dressing room,” he said.
“We therefore reached an agreement to give the coach seven days to think about his job because after a series of some events we felt he did not treat the matter with adequate respect."
When contacted by the publication, Ndlovu, who hails from Zimbabwe, directed all queries to the team management.
“I can’t discuss Orapa United meetings with the media. I think the management is in a better position to respond to the media," he said.
“I hear everything that is said in the media and I read all things that are written, but I am here in Orapa. We are on international break and that is all I can say."
Orapa, who are placed sixth on the league standings, will face high-flying Township Rollers at the National Stadium on Saturday, 18 November 2017.
