Malesela was relieved of his duties of the weekend following the Chilli Boys' 5-1 loss at the hands of Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium.

Chippa have now confirmed the appointment of the former Free State Stars coach as an Technical Advisor, while assistant coach Siyabulela Gwambi will take over as head coach on interim basis.

Chippa United Football Club would like to announce that it has reached an amicable decision to part ways with Dan Malesela, with this decision effective immediately.

We would like to thank Mr. Malesela for his contribution to the Club and to wish him well in his future endeavours.

Siyabulela Gwambi, the side's assistance coach, will take over the Head Coach responsibilities on an interim basis.

We would like to wish him well on this appointment, where the Club objectives are on improving the current DStv Premiership log standings and on also reaching the prestigious Nedbank Cup final.

The Club has also appointed well-travelled Belgian, Luc Eymael, in a Technical Advisor role where he will play an integral mentorship role for the technical team.
