Phakaaathi has learnt that Black Leopards are set to sack coach David Bright and replace him with former coach Kosta Papic.

Papic parted ways with Polokwane City last week after a poor start to the season.

“The fans are not happy with David Bright and they want him to be removed. Bright had to be escorted by the police after Saturday’s loss to Mbombela United,” said a source close to Leopards.

This was after Lidoda Duvha threw away a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to the National First Division debutants.

“The management have called a meeting with Bright. They want answers from him as to why the team is not doing well, but this is just a formality. The team is not doing well, the fans want him out, so it’s just a matter of time before he is sacked.

“In the meantime, the club management want Papic back. They think he is the man to lead Leopards back to the PSL,” added the source.

Papic left Leopards in June last year to take up the coaching job at Chippa United, but didn’t last long at the Chilli Boys.

After leaving Chippa, he joined Polokwane City in September last year.
