Lehlohonolo Seema resigns as Polokwane City head coach.

By Lehlohonolo Lehana.

Former Orlando Pirates captain Lehlohonolo Seema has confirmed his sudden departure as the head coach of Polokwane City.

Seema took charge of Rise and Shine at the start of the season following their return to the DStv Premiership.

City gained automatic promotion to the topflight league after winning the 2022/23 Motsepe Foundation Championship under the guidance of Duncan Lechesa.

Lechesa abruptly left the club with indications he was unhappy about the treatment he was getting from management. 

I submitted my resignation on Sunday night, said Seema.

"All that I can say is that I am happy with the job that I did at the club."

He took charge of 12 league games at City this season – he won four, lost three and drew five, and they are in sixth position.

Seema began his coaching career in 2013 at now defunct Bloemfotein Celtic, where he focused on scouting. He has held head coaching positions at Chippa United, Golden Arrows, and Black Leopards.
