Pressure Mounts For Chippa Coach
Teboho Moloi On Thin Ice At Chippa
News reaching the Siya crew is that pressure is mounting for Teboho Moloi, as results have been eluding Chippa United in recent matches.
Following an impressive start to his head coaching career at the Port Elizabeth outfit, albeit on a caretaker basis, which led to the club’s chairman Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi promising him a permanent deal earlier in the season, Moloi has watched his side struggle to secure wins in their recent matches.
Apart from their 2-0 victory over the third-tier side, Phiva Young Stars, in the Nedbank Cup two weeks ago, Chippa have battled to pick up enough points in their Absa Premiership campaign.
The team’s last league win was over AmaZulu in January, and before last weekend’s 4-2 loss to Orlando Pirates, the Chilli Boys only managed draws in five consecutive matches.
According to sources, the management of the Eastern Cape side has not been entirely pleased with the team's results.
While there has been no official confirmation from the club’s management about Moloi’s position, it is believed that the team’s performance is a top of discussion at Chippa.
“There have been discussions about the team’s results and the coach. Nothing has been finalised yet. But as it is always the case in football, anything is possible,” said the source.
Chippa are ninth on the PSL log, after winning only five from 22 matches played so far this season.
