2012-07-09 14:32

Johannesburg - New Chippa United coach Manqoba Mngqithi says he is excited about the prospect of coaching the newly-promoted outfit in the coming Premiership season.

The Cape side on Monday announced Mngqithi, the former Golden Arrows and AmaZulu mentor, as a replacement for Roger Sikhakane.

Sikhakane led the Chilli Boys to promotion in the playoffs last month.

"I am excited about the new prospect," said Mngqithi, who has signed a one-year deal with an option to extend.

"I also did my own homework on the club, and so far everything is going well.

"We will be aiming very high in the season."

The club, founded two years ago, will unveil new signings next week ahead of their inaugural season in the top flight.

    Chippa is not learning from history, u do not fire the guy that brought u promotion.U will struggle in the PSL.

      My thoughts exactely... why fire the coach? What did Mngqithi do at Arrows and Amazulu that was so wonderful? Obviously the fired coach knew the team well and inspired them. I was so excited about Chippa United, but not anymore... another sad PSL story.

      i agree with you.I must say it will not be a surprise to see them being relegated again that is after firing the coach midway the season.

    Relax guys, the coach wasnt fired but will be assisting Mngqithi in the new season. It was the coach himself that asked for a much experienced help. Chippa is still on-course!
