WHY KRMPOTIC OPTED FOR EAGLES OVER BAROKA
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.
