Free State Stars are searching for a new head coach after Ernst Middendorp resigned on Monday.
Ernst Middendorp has resigned as Free State Stars head coach with immediate effect,” the club announced on their website on Monday.
“The club will make an announcement on the German’s successor before the next match against Golden Arrows on 9 January 2016.
“Saturday’s 1-0 win over Jomo Cosmos was Middendorp’s last match in charge, which means he leaves on a winning note, the same way he started his reign with a 3-0 win over Chippa United on 12 September.
“We thank Ernst Middendorp for his contribution to the Ea Lla Koto cause and wish him well in his future endeavours.
The former Kaizer Chiefs, Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United coach joined Stars in September when the team was still battling relegation, but managed to turn things around and he now leaves them in 10th position.
