Masilela was the door after he failed to win at least one out of the six DSTV premiership matches the team took part in. The last straw took place after the team lost points after losing 3-2 to Cape Town City in a recent match.

In a statement released by the team, it was revealed that club owner Tim Suzuki found the decision to let Masilela go to be a very difficult one indeed because of the coach's rich history with the team.
