Chippa United fire fifth coach

Johannesburg - Chippa United have fired their fifth coach of the season, with Wilfred Mugeyi becoming the latest casualty at the club.

According to the Soccer-laduma website, the crew reported last week that the coach was on thin ice at the club. A string of poor results has kept the Chilli Boys firmly rooted at the bottom of the PSL, and after a meeting on Thursday it was decided that both Mugeyi and technical director, Roger Sikhakhane, would be relieved of their duties.

Mugeyi confirmed his exit from Chippa with Soccer-Laduma, “Unfortunately, there’s no more going forward because I got sacked today. You are the first to know that. I wasn’t told the reason.

Chippa sent Wanda (Mbenguzana) to tell me the news. Roger has been fired as well.”

It remains to be seen who will be brought in to replace Mugeyi at the helm of the club. However, whichever man is given the poisoned chalice, will no doubt understand that the club, who have 16 points from 24 games, are probably on their way out of South Africa’s top tier of football.

Mugeyi was brought into the club in January to replace Farouk Abrahams after he had become the fourth coach to be fired by the club.
