AFTER taking United FC from the bottom of the National First Division's Inland Stream log, Sheppard Murape believes the team's management is ungrateful and has quit as head coach.
United are now fourth on the log after Murape had guided them to three wins, two draws and a single loss during his spell at the club.
Before his arrival United FC were under the tutelage of Styles Phumo and Shakes Kungwane, who were relieved of their duties after failing to deliver the necessary points.
Despite signing an array of former Premier Soccer League "bad boy" stars, including Ayanda "Scara" Ngobese, Thabo "Junior" Khanye, Steve "Chippa" Lekoelea, Jabulani "S-curl" Mendu and Patrick Thwala, Kungwane and Phumo could not get it right and managed only five points in seven games.
Now Murape is gatvol that despite his obvious success, management deemed it fit to bring former Maritzburg United coach and Pirates assistant coach Ian Palmer into the equation as technical director.
Murape said: "The last straw was on Friday last week when Palmer was brought in when we were to play log leaders African Warriors. I had given them the team that was going to play against Warriors only for the captain to later come back to me with a changed squad.
"I wasn't going to allow that and never will. After all I did for the team they brought someone else in. There was nothing I could do but to quit."
United's team manager Richard Makhoba yesterday said he could not comment on the matter.
"I do not have the necessary details at hand and when the time is right the chairman will release a statement," he said.
