Pressure Mounts For Chippa Coach

Teboho Moloi On Thin Ice At Chippa

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 27, 2018 10:11 AM

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.

You refused to work as Dan Malesela's assistant and thereafter bad mouthed him, and now the wheel is turning against you Teboho.

@Fanaticalism, well, nna I still maintain the same would still apply had Chippa Utd been coached by a white Coach. Remember David Thidiela, the Black Leopard Boss, he would fire a Coach at any given time, irrespective of whether the Coach was black or white. But be thus as it may, I wish Mpengesi exercise patience and allow Moloi to continue with his job.

I never take Teboho serious as a successful coach since from my beloved Pirates. His departure never hurt me even a little bit.

That is Mpengesi for you, there is no smoke without fire,. He was singing praises forTeboho just like he did with Dan Malesela but at the end Dan Malesela was fired. Did Teboho thinks that he will survive the chop?

Tebza is draw a lot but I think must be given all the last 8 games left for the season with a mandate of top 8 spot and nedbank semi finals. Please chippa don't fire him now. Kikikikikiki

@setlaboswana I agree with you Chippa is trigger happy and notorious for firing coaches. This article just made me check articles on other coaches and I realised that there are NO articles about white coaches being under pressure...just an observation....

As long as the majority of South Africa label that continental underachieving Chiefs as the biggest team in Southern Africa, we will continue praising mediocrity. I mean Teboho Moloi took Chippa United from losses to draws but suddenly he was announced the best coach as if he won the cup. Look now....

@Fanaticalism, my friend, it is not necessary to source a comment in order to make a conclusion on an established practice. It is a common course that Mpengesi will most probably fire a Coach who goes on to lose few games. There is available data to support this conclusion.

Roger De Sa is last on the log but NO story about him being under pressure...the last story about Platinum Stars was LieDuma focusing on Ngambii's poor form as reason Platinum Stars are last..

@setlaboswana hence it is easy for LieDuma to push him to fire another black coach...the statement is not by Siviwe but LieDuma

@Fanaticalism, still that does not take away the fact that Mpengesi is a firing club owner, this is well documented, history repeated itself many times at Chippa Utd, available data support this theory.

@Mumm_Rubi Chippa never said anything about the coach . This is the same tactic LieDuma is using against Steph Khompela...He is in position 9 why must Chippa panic

@setlaboswana Roger De Sa is last on log but ''not under pressure'' even though he now owns the team. If this was Jomo, LieDuma would be calling for him to resign and appoint someone else

@Zbo4 just an observation...if you follow this page you will realise that there are NO stories about Eric, Roger or Gavin being under pressure while last or below top 8, but Steve and Tebogo are ''on thin ice''. Start observing all Lieduma articles about black coaches (always under pressure) vs white coaches (no pressure from media regardless of results or log position.)

@the controvercial, I think things would have been in his favour had he won against Bucs on Sunday.
