Alex Northrand LFA in search of a new technical director

LFA secretary general Malvin Khumalo says Tsivo is also free to apply now that the requirement for a technical director to also coach a club has been lifted following the recent AGM.

The Alexandra Northrand Local Football Association is on the hunt for a new technical director to oversee its coaching department.
This follows the departure of the incumbent Tsietsi ‘Tsivo’ Letsoela, who claimed to have been ‘fired’ by the LFA on grounds that they ‘did not trust him anymore’ after he handed in his resignation.
Speaking to Alex News, Tsivo, as he is better known in football circles, said he had expected some engagement with the LFA so he could express his disappointments and allow the LFA to maybe meet some of the operational demands he would have tabled.
“Instead, they never came back to me or even acknowledged receipt of my resignation letter. The next thing I saw there was an advertisement that they were looking for a TD [technical director]. I consider that as a sacking on my part. If it’s not, then tell me what it is,” Tsivo said.
When contacted after sending a hiring advertisement, the secretary general of the LFA Malvin Khumalo said Tsivo had resigned and indicated in his letter that he wanted to focus his attention on club coaching.

Pressed for more, Khumalo said the TD had returned to the club he was coaching before, AmaSkills United after they requested to have him back. “Taking into cognisance of our rule that a TD must not be associated or attached to any club, we then released him.
“This rule has since been amended at the recent AGM, and we can now have a TD with a coaching stint at a club as well and he can also apply for the position now. We are keeping it open to all candidates who could not apply earlier due to the old rule,” Khumalo said.
Khumalo added that he had since parted ways with AmaSkills, which was confirmed by Tsivo saying that he was now clubless after parting ways with AmaSkills United.
