Heric: He Doesn’t Know Why He Fired Me

Chippa United head coach Vladislav Heric says club boss Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi has struggled to explain why he fired him the last time he was the coach of the side.

Heric was announced as the club’s technical advisor when he re-joined the Eastern Cape outfit two weeks ago to work alongside Siyabulela Gwambi who had been the caretaker coach.

The 54-year-old has made some notable progress in the team’s fight against relegation after guiding the side to successive victories against Kaizer Chiefs and Stellenbosch FC respectively in the last two matches.

The Serbian mentor is on a third spell with the Chilli Boys and says he accepted the job even though he had been angry with Mpengesi whom he says fired him without reason. 

“The chairman has a very good heart and his family also. I actually like these people, although I have been (angry) at him (Mpengesi) several times because he fired me without a reason. He might also tell you that he doesn’t know why he fired me, that’s what he explained to every one of us,” said Heric, speaking to journalists.

Heric and the team will forget for a moment about the relegation fight, as the side prepares for their historic Nedbank Cup final on Saturday against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.

“But, anyway, I have no issues with my chairman and I’m very grateful that he called me again. I jumped for that opportunity to win the trophy for Gqeberha and for the Eastern Cape, which is a personal achievement,” the coach added.
