Cape Town - Former Golden Arrows mentor Clinton Larsen has
signed a deal until the end of the season to become the new coach of Chippa
Chippa have already had three coaches this season though
they have all been sacked as the Chilli Boys continued to endure poor form.
Dan Malesela was the first to get the chop, before the axe
later fell on Eric Tinkler's neck.
Joel Masutha was the latest to see his head roll off the
chopping block at the hands of club boss Chippa Mpengesi.
Nonetheless, Mpengesi says he is hopeful that Larsen can
survive until the end of the campaign although this would take positive results
on the field of play.
The Port Elizabeth-based outfit have a break until 19
January before their next game which seemingly hands time to Larsen to get his
methods across to the players.
The coach's representative Mike Makaab confirmed to Soccer
Laduma that Larsen has penned a deal until the end of the current season.
United are in all kinds of trouble in the relegation zone
having not won a game since October.
Chippa face fellow strugglers Maritzburg United later this
month in what will be a six-pointer for both outfits.
