NMB Municipality, who have invested a lot of money in Chippa after their involvement in relocating the club from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth in 2014 in a multi-million rand deal, believe that the Chilli Boys should consider changing their style of management, or risk facing unfavourable consequences, this after Norman Mapeza’s resignation from his position as the club’s head coach this week, having led the team to a 1-0 win over AmaZulu on the weekend.

“On behalf of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, I would like to express our serious concern about the recent resignation of Chippa United Norman Mapeza. Over the past two seasons, we have seen the team frequently changing coaches and senior managers. It was Dan Malesela, Eric Tinkler, Joel Masutha, Clinton Larsen, Duran Francis, now Norman Mapeza, whom we are told decided to resign. What worries us most, is the fact that all these changes or firing of coaches and managers have been characterised by lack of visionary leadership, a clumsy management style and an obvious lack of understanding of the business of football,” NMB’s statement reads.

“We believe that this style of management is the reason why the team has found itself fighting for relegation every season, including the current season. As the main sponsor of the team and a partner who really has the best interest of the team at heart, we call upon the management of Chippa United to shape up. Our City has invested a lot of ratepayers money in this team. This team carries the dreams and aspirations of young footballers of our City and Province. If things continue like this, we might not be lucky this time to survive the relegation axe,” concludes NMB’s statement.  

In leaving the Mother City more than five years ago, Chippa chairman Siviwe 'Chippa' Mpengesi confirmed that the team would be out of the Western Cape for at least 20 years, as per the partnership with NMB Municipality.
