News reaching the Siya crew is that the Chippa United players are in the dark over the news regarding Eric Tinkler.
The Chilli Boys dropped to the relegation/play-off spot following their 1-0 defeat to AmaZulu on Friday evening.
While, the Siya crew has been informed that Tinkler has exited, there are indications that the players have not been informed about the decision.
One Chippa player confirmed to the crew that they had not been informed and that they had been given the weekend off after the defeat to Usuthu.
Chippa club officials and Tinkler's camp have been unavailable for comment.
Tinkler took over from Dan Malesela in August, but has only led the club to three wins in 10 matches across all competitions.
