Struggling Mighty Tigers have parted ways with Head Coach Rodgers Yasin following the team’s poor start to the 2020/21 TNM Super League season.
This comes barely three days after Yasin criticised the club’s management for failing to take full responsibility for Tigers’ lacklustre start.
Tigers Technical Director Robin Alufandika could neither confirm nor deny the development, saying he was yet to receive official communication from the executive.
“I will be in office on Friday [today] so let’s comment on that once I come back from what I am doing now,” he said.
But Yasin confirmed being relieved of his duties at Tigers, saying he wished the team the best.
“It is true that I am no longer a Tigers coach. I can’t talk much but let the club owners know that the team will not perform if the welfare of the players is being compromised,” said the former Nyasa Big Bullets mentor.
But inside sources have confided with Times that Tigers have roped in Trevor Kajawa to replace Yasin.
Kajawa, who last season was coaching Ntopwa FC, said he would give full details after finalising everything with Tigers officials.
“I am ready to help them but I am yet to meet the officials of the club,” he said.
Tigers have lost five consecutive matches.
The Kau-Kau outfit have won and drew once. They are on position 15 on the 16-member log table with four points from seven games.
Tigers lost 1-0 to Ekwendeni Hammers on Saturday at Mpira Stadium in Blantyre.
