As predicted by the Siya crew earlier today, Chippa United have appointed former Santos coach Ian Palmer as their new coach. Palmer joins the Chilli Boys on a one year contract.
Raad: Palmer Close To Joining Chippa
The latest development was confirmed to the Siya crew by Chippa own Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi.
“Ian has signed a one-year contract with an option to renew,” said Mpengesi.
“We decided to appoint Ian because we trust that he will do the job for us,” added the Chippa boss.
Palmer becomes the second coach for Chippa this season after Mark Harrison quit this weekend and joined Premier Soccer League side Golden Arrows as their new coach.
