Rahman Gumbo has been relieved of his duties at South Africa National First Division side Witbank Spurs.

Gumbo who recently secured his work permit was placed on “special leave” after he failed to bring forth the desired results. He joined the team ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The club confirmed the development on Facebook last night. They said the decision was mutual and Vusi Mkhatshwa will take over on an interim basis.

“The Siyavutha management have decided unanimously with our head coach Mr.Rahman Gumbo to place him on special leave. The decision was taken largely due to results that were not forthcoming,” Spurs said in a statement.

“The team will be administered on the interim basis by Mr.Vusi Mkhatshwa and Mr.Tshepo Ntia as his assistant.”

However, there is speculation that Gumbo could be on his way to Dynamos.

The 54-year-old is seen as another potential replacement for coach Lloyd Mutasa. Mutasa has been under fire after failing to deliver at the Harare Giants since his return to the hot seat in June.

Dembare currently sit on the 13th place, just a point ahead of the team occupying the top spot in the relegation zone.
