Word coming out of the Free State Stars camp is that the club has parted ways with Denis Lavagne following a poor start to the season.

Stars are currently second from bottom on the log, having collected just one point in three games and, according to a source, this has not gone down well with the Ea Lla Koto management.

“The club management will meet the coach this morning where he will be told that his services are no longer needed. Themba Sithole will be the interim coach until a new coach is hired,” the source told Phakaaathi.

Lavagne replaced Giovanni Solinas at the beginning of the season. This was after the Italian coach stepped down citing personal commitments for his decision to resign.

Ea Lla Koto are yet to register a win since Lavagne took over.

They lost 1-0 at home to Golden Arrows on Tuesday night with Lehlohonolo Nonyane scoring in the dying minutes of the game.
