Coaches Are Not Magicians! They Need Time To Build A Winning Team. - Reader’s Voice


Chippa United has appointed another coach, in the form of Norman Mapeza who formerly played as a striker for the Zimbabwe national team.



This appointment makes Norman (Mapeza), the 29th coach that Chippa United Chairman (Siviwe) ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi, has appointed in ten years since establishing the club. He comes in shortly after former coach, Clinton Larsen, was sacked a fortnight ago with Duran Francis taking the reins temporarily, but now Mpengesi has found a permanent replacement in Mapeza, who signed a three-year deal.



Mapeza comes with an impressive resume having made 92 appearances for Zimbabwe between 1993 until 2001 and, became only the second Zimbabwean to play in the (UEFA) Champions League with Galatasaray. Yet he too may find himself sacked sooner than anticipated.



It is true, all teams want the best coaches out there, yet even the best of the best need to be given a chance to build a team, rather than taking over the players from former coaches.



A Change of coaches’ disorients the team, look at Orlando Pirates now, after former Coach Micho (Milutin Sredojevic) left, it has been a real struggle. That's why I think the PSL should intervene, putting up rules in the duration which a coach should stay, before being sacked.



Chippa United is now a laughing stock. Mapeza is the 29th coach in ten years, that's just extreme. Maybe the coaches are not the problem, maybe quality players are also needed, maybe a new technical team, and the management structure also needs rapid change as well.



How long do you think the new head coach at Chippa United will last? Will he get it right compared to the 28th who came and left?
