Marumo Gallants have announced that the team will no longer be dancing to coach Da “Dance” Malesela’s tune. The Limpopo based side released a short statement on Friday afternoon announcing that they would not be renewing Malesela’s contract when it ends. 

Malesela guided the side to the Nedbank Cup final where they narrowly lost to Mamelodi Sundowns. They finished 10th in the DStv Premiership, a decent position considering it was their first season.

They have not indicated when they would be announcing a new coach. Gallants will be one of South Africa’s four representatives in the Caf club championships next season along with Sundowns, Cape Town City and Royal AM.
