More Technical Team Changes Planned For Chippa

Restructuring of the technical team is underway at Chippa United as the team prepares for their upcoming match, which will be in nine days.

The Chilli Boys will host fellow PSL strugglers Maritzburg United in a bottom of the log clash at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on January 19.

The Port Elizabeth outfit will be expected to have a new coach in Clinton Larsen on their bench for the Maritzburg match, as club chairman Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi has been in Durban to try and conclude negotiations and a deal with the former Golden Arrows mentor about taking over at his club. 

Meanwhile, former Chippa assistant coach Mbuyiselo Sambu is expected to be reinstated to the club’s technical bench in the same position.  

Sambu served as Chippa’s assistant coach since December 2015 but was removed from the bench during the various technical team changes made at the club.  

Eric Tinkler had Vincent Kobola as his assistant at the Eastern Cape outfit, while former goalkeeper Joel Masutha opted for fellow ex-shot-stopper Tshepo Motsoeneng to work alongside him during his tenure. 

According to sources, plans are in place at Chippa to have Sambu return to the bench to work alongside Larsen if all goes according to plan for all the parties.

Meanwhile, Mpengesi told SABC’s Umhlobo Wenene FM that Larsen could be the coach they have been looking for all along to take the team to greater heights.

“I want to make sure that I bring a coach like Larsen. There aren’t many coaches out there. There aren’t many Pitso Mosimanes in South Africa. There aren’t many Gavin Hunts. We do have hope that we would get our Gavin Hunt or our Pitso Mosimane one day. We do hope that Clinton Larsen could be our man,” the chairman told the radio station, in part.
