Celtic coach Letsoaka was fired a day after losing 1-2 to BidVest Wits in a league match and Konco said the coach has been sacked due to the team’s poor run of results.

“Unfortunately, results are not forthcoming and the reality is that football is results driven. After our meeting with the coach, we agreed to part ways,” Konco told the club’s website.

“It was not an easy decision to take, purely because of our healthy relationship with the coach. We would like to wish him all of the best in his future endeavours.” he added.

This will be Maduka’s first ever high profile coaching job.
