Why Dragojlo is stuck at ‘Peleng’

Publishing Date : 02 March, 2015


Extension Gunners grand plan of throwing out Sebian coach, Dragojlo Stan…… has backfired. The club finds itself between a rock and a hard place as the struggle to part ways with the Serbian coach continues.

Information reaching WeekendSport suggests that Dragojlo is still in possession of the ‘club’s vehicle and enjoys a rather cordial relationship with club financer, Cassim Dada. To date, the former Centre chiefs gaffer has not received a formal dismissal letter due to the club‘s perennial infighting.

Storm clouds still hover over the Peleng side, even after appointing new chairman Kitso Dlamini and reports that Dlamini’s camp was divided upon the appointment of the coach have been dismissed as Dragojlo continues to lead the club after proving his critics wrong when Gunners enjoyed an impressive first round.

Dlamini’s camp is said to have grown more impatient and showed the Sebian international the door, and the situation, according to speculations could have been fed by the club seeking its own identity. They then reportedly ambushed Notwane coach Calvin Petersen who to this date is without a work permit. His ascendance to the team‘s hot seat unfortunately lingers on the ability of the team to clear off Dragojlo. According to labour laws, Gunners will have to explain and show that they have indeed parted ways with Dragojlo more so that another foreigner is lined for the job.

As things stand, the club stand is in a lockdown about the future of the man who would essentially succeed Dragojlo however there is little to restore the team‘s dented pride. A series of meetings are said to be staged behind closed doors and it emerged that neither Dragojlo nor Calvin are the targeted coaches if the club is indeed insistent in turning its fortunes around.

Reports coming in from the club boardrooms suggest that there is a side leading for reconciliation primarily to swing the pendulum in favour of their former coach, Daniel Nare. Although Nare himself has labelled this as ‘corridor talk’, his unexpected resignation at Ramotswa based outfit Letlapeng after just four games raises eyebrows.

All the while, Dragojlo still attends Gunners games and at times goes beyond the call of a mere spectator to dish out instructions to a team he claims to dearly love.

With the reported fall out between Gunners chairman Dlamini and Dada, Dragojlo remains attached to the club and on the other hand Calvin Petersen is allegedly used as a pawn in a careful chess game to protect and safe guard the interests of Daniel Nare.

The Club chairman has downplayed all the reports as “nothing concrete and malicious reports intended to derail the club.”
