Chippa 'Shocked’ By Harrison’s Departure

Chippa United have reacted with shock after their coach Mark Harrison left the club and joined Golden Arrows this past weekend.

Harrison resigned as Chippa coach to take up the coaching post at Abafana Bes’thende. This follows the departure of Manqoba Mngqithi, who resigned after a poor start to the season.

“I received a call from Mark on Sunday telling me that he had sent in a resignation letter and that he was going to join Arrows. He said he got a better offer there and had decided to take it,” Chippa’s Chief Operations Officer Peter Kotroulis told the Siya crew.

“Obviously, we were shocked to hear that because we were of the opinion that he will be the man to take us back to the PSL. There’s no doubt that his departure is a major setback to us but I don’t think that it will have any major impact because we have structures in place to make sure that the team continues to do well in the NFD,” added Kotroulis.

Kotroulis revealed to the Siya crew that the Chippa management will hold a meeting later today where the position of the head coach would be discussed.

According to sources, current Chippa assistant coach Tony de Nobrega might be given the nod for the post. Former Santos coach, Ian Palmer, has also been mentioned as a possible replacement, but Kotroulis could not confirm any of these developments.

“Like I said, the decision on who will take over the coaching post will be made in today’s meeting,” concluded Kotroulis.
