FC Platinum has dismissed as false reports claiming that assistant coach Lizwe Sweswe is headed for the exit as he reportedly does not see eye-to-eye with head coach Pieter De Jongh.
The reports had further claimed that the FC Platinum coach wants Sweswe replaced by Highlanders assistant coach Mandla “Lulu” Mpofu.
FC Platinum public relations officer, Chido Chizondo denied they are making changes to the technical department. She said:
Sweswe is not leaving and we have not talked to anyone about replacing him because he is committed to us.
The technical department is focused on our upcoming Caf Champions League game and we don’t know where the reports are emanating from.
The Zimbabwe Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions will commence their 2020/21 CAF Champions League campaign in later in November.
