Cape Town Spurs CEO Alexi Efstathiou has explained why the club decided to part ways with head coach Vladislav Heric on Thursday, 14 January.
“Government has given the NSL the privilege to continue to play out our season,” said Cape Town Spurs CEO Alexi Efstathiou.
“With this privilege, comes a responsibility to the wider society, a responsibility that we, as a club, do not take lightly. We will continue to follow the NSL’s protocols regarding Covid-19 and do the best we can under the circumstances.
“We believe that the NSL is constantly monitoring the situation with all the teams, both DStv Premiership and GladAfrica Championship, ensuring that everyone follows their protocols.
“The NSL is also aware that it is critical for the credibility of both leagues, that all teams maintain the standard of safety at all times. The current situation is forcing teams to make unprecedented decisions on and off the field.
“We are comforted to know that the NSL ensures that there is ‘fair play’ all round, from all the teams, in order to maintain the integrity of the leagues. We wish Coach Vlad [Heric] a speedy recovery.”
