Seema opens up on reasons behind Polokwane City exit

Coach Lehlohonolo Seema has revealed the reasons behind his sudden departure from Limpopo-based PSL side, Polokwane City.

Seema’s exit left many baffled and eager for answers, and in an exclusive interview with FARPost, he has shed light on the factors that led to his decision to leave the club.

PLK City gained promotion to the DStv Premiership after being crowned 2022/23 Motsepe Foundation Championship winners.

Rise and Shine have had a promising start to the 2023/24 campaign in the elite league after accumulating 17 points in 12 matches with Seema at the wheel.

Polokwane City won four games, drew five and lost on three occasions. They are currently sitting sixth on the league table.

Seema was roped in at PLK City at the start of the season to serve as co-coach alongside Duncan Lechesa. But the latter left the club to join National First Division [NFD] side Venda FC, who parted ways with Joel Masutha last month.

This publication exclusively reported on Monday that Seema resigned from his position as the coach of Polokwane City.

“As you know, I lost my father not so long ago and it has been tough for me. So I decided to step back and be with my family. Losing my father has affected me a lot. I just need time with my family,” he added.

Prior to joining the Jonny Mogaladi-owned club, Seema helped Chippa United survive relegation at the end of last season.

It remains to be seen who will take over the caching reigns at City as they look to consolidate their position in the DStv Premiership.
