Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi – chairman of Chippa United – has officially welcomed the team’s new head coach to the Port Elizabeth club.
Following a decision to send Duran Francis back to his old position in the development structures at the club, Zimabwean coach Norman Mapeza has been appointed as the Eastern Cape club’s new coach.
Francis had been the caretaker coach of the side, following the departure of Clinton Larsen. In welcoming Mapeza, Mpengesi has assured the former FC Platinum coach of the support of his office.
The Chilli Boys tweeted on Tuesday afternoon: "Our Chairman introduces and welcomes Head Coach Norman Mapeza this afternoon. We wish Coach all of the best, with the support of the office, the technical team and players.”
