Coaching Situation Tops Agenda For Chippa After Relegation Escape

The future of the coach tops the agenda at Chippa United, after the club successfully avoided relegation at the end of the 2018/19 season. 

The Chill Boys are looking to extend the contract of Clinton Larsen, following the team's progress under the Durban-born coach.

Following his arrival at Chippa, after the Eastern Cape club parted ways with Joel Masutha in January, Larsen brought about a change in the club’s fortunes with the team’s improved results on the field.

The former Golden Arrows coach led the Port Elizabeth-based outfit to the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup, having beaten the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits on the way, while he also ensured that the team maintained the enterprising brand of football it is known for.

Larsen has led Chippa to five wins, three draws and five losses from the 13 matches he has been in charge of during the team’s Absa Premiership campaign.

The club’s boss, Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi, is keen to keep the coach on a long-term contract, as the short-term deal he signed on arrival will expire. 

“Chippa United are looking to finalise the issue of the coach’s contract so that all the other plans for the new season could follow. The parties are agreeing on almost everything and they just have to conclude and seal the deal. It’s likely to be finalised this weekend in Durban,” a source told the Siya crew.

“The chairman is expected to be in Durban this weekend for the Nedbank Cup final (for Kaizer Chiefs and TS Galaxy), as well as the PSL’s awards. He is expected to meet with the coach and his representatives while in Durban to possibly conclude,” added the source.

Larsen has concluded his 10th PSL season, as he continues to make a name for himself as one of top coaches in South Africa’s top flight.
