The Chilli Boys were on their way back home from their 2-0 against Orlando Pirates on Tuesday evening. 

The chairperson of Chippa supporters in the Eastern Cape, Yebho Ntoni, had revealed to the Siya crew earlier today that he and the other supporters in the region would be voicing their unhappiness about Middendorp’s job in the team.

The supporters stuck to their word and demanded that Middendorp be shown the exit door, according to a high-ranking source in the camp of Chippa.

“We were all shocked with the reception we received when we landed in Port Elizabeth earlier today. We arrived to a mess at the airport. It looked like the people who were behind all of what happened planned it. The club is investigating the matter.

"There were a lot of people on our arrival at the airport, including journalists and television cameras. The coach’s mistake was exposing himself to the public, without the protection of the police. It was chaos. I don’t know what will be happening.

"The supporters made it clear to him that he shouldn’t set his foot on the club’s premises again. The club has a duty to protect him. But if we are to choose between him and the supporters, before the next match on Friday, I don’t know,” said the source.   

Chippa’s next league game will be against the resurgent AmaZulu, in front of the Eastern Cape supporters at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday night.      

The club’s management is expected to decide on the safety and future of Middendorp in the next few hours.
