Cape Town - Chippa United chairman Siviwe Mpengesi says he will extend an invitation to former coach Teboho Moloi to be employed in a different capacity at the Port Elizabeth-based club. 

Despite winning the Premiership Coach of the Month award last December, Moloi was axed last week after a recent slump in form which saw three draws and two defeats recorded in the league. 

The experienced Vladislav Heric has since been brought in as his replacement as the Chilli Boys prioritise moving away from any potential relegation danger.

Nonetheless, Mpengesi believes there is a role for Moloi in a different capacity and insists there is no bad blood between them.

Speaking to the Sowetan, he said: "Teboho is a very good guy and he's my friend. I would like to deploy him to other roles within the club. I am planning to table that offer to him. 

"Unlike other coaches who we fired and went to talk bad about us in the media, Teboho is different. I would really like to keep my healthy relationship with him. The reason to part ways with him was more of a precautional measure. The results were not forthcoming.'"

Meanwhile, the ex-Chippa mentor said he would consider any offer tabled although not in a coaching capacity. The 49-year-old told the publication: "If he's saying that, let's wait and see what's the offer. (But) it mustn't be a coaching role. 

"I don't hold anything against him. At the end of the day he had to make a decision. Maybe he's been in that situation before, that's why he pressed the panic button."
