WHY KRMPOTIC OPTED FOR EA­GLES OVER BAROKA

Soccer Laduma - - Weekly Roundup -

Rush Hour Sports Man­age­ment, who are the man­age­ment com­pany that re­cently fa­cil­i­tated the deal for Ser­bian coach Zlatko Krmpotic to Royal Ea­gles, are happy for their client’s new deal in South Africa.

Krmpotic was ap­pointed as Ea­gles’ head coach last week. At the time KwaZulu-Natal club had al­lowed Roger Sikhakhane sick leave, only days be­fore the for­mer Chippa United coach’s pass­ing.

Speak­ing to the Siya crew about Krmpotic’s new role at Ea­gles, Rush Hour Sports Man­age­ment’s Rat­shib­vumo Mulovhedzi con­firmed the de­tails of the for­mer Zesco United coach’s deal.

“Zlatko Krmpotic has signed with Royal Ea­gles for eight months. He is a Ser­bian coach with a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence in foot­ball. He is a highly qual­i­fied coach,” con­firmed Mulovhedzi.

“Ea­gles were keen to sign him on a two-year deal, but it was de­cided that an eight-month deal would be a right deal for now. There had been talks with Baroka about him, but be­cause there wasn’t any­thing con­crete from them, we de­cided on the Ea­gles of­fer.

“Ea­gles were very pro­fes­sional with their ap­proach and that is why the coach de­cided on their of­fer,” added Mulovhedzi.

Ea­gles lost 2-1 against Mac­cabi FC in their match at the Chatsworth Sta­dium on Satur­day and are 12th on the NFD log with only three wins from 10 matches.
