Chippa: Komphela Had A Clause

Chippa United’s CEO says that there was a clause in Steve Komphela’s contract with Maritzburg United that stopped him from joining the Chilli Boys.

There has been much speculation surrounding the head coach role at Chippa since it was announced that Vladislav Heric, the man that got them promoted, would not be staying on.

Chippa originally confirmed the appointment of Komphela, however Maritzburg were quick to shut down the claims, explaining that he was under contract to them and was going nowhere.

The Siya crew then revealed earlier this week that Komphela’s move to Chippa had fallen through, and that Black Leopards coach, Kosta Papic, would be taking over the job instead.

Peter Koutroulis, Chippa’s CEO, has now explained that the reason the deal with Komphela fell through was because of a clause in his contract with the Team of Choice.

Speaking to the media earlier today, Koutroulis said, “He had a clause with Maritzburg, he’s a good coach, but at the end of the day if you can’t sort out these things with the contract then you can’t sign him.”

Also, when asked about the firing of Chippa’s former coach, he said, “I like Heric, but he doesn’t have a good PSL record. We needed somebody who can keep Chippa in the PSL, we’re not looking to win trophies, anything else that we get will be a bonus.”

Papic is likely to be announced as Chippa’s new head coach tomorrow.
