Sangweni Packs His Bags And Leaves Chippa

Thamsanqa Sangweni’s time at Chippa United is over, with the midfielder packing his bags and leaving Port Elizabeth after growing disillusioned at the club.

The 25-year-old, who originally joined Chippa for gametime, had been in fine form earlier in the season, but seems to have been marginalised since voicing his concerns and was recently told to train with the club’s U19s. 

Sangweni and Chippa were impressive during the early stages of the season, with the player even earning himself a Bafana Bafana call up and the national team armband at one stage, however his situation, and the club’s, has deteriorated since. 

Now, having grown frustrated at the situation at the club, as well as the fact that financial obligations to both the player and his agent were not met, the Siya crew has been informed that he has decided to leave the club and work towards next season on his own. 

Sangweni put his foot down last year when he had previous financial issues with the club, and the last straw was being told that he was not fit on his return from the 2015 African Cup of Nations, and being sent to train with the club’s youth team. 

It was no secret that Chippa wanted to make the midfielder’s loan move from Mamelodi Sundowns a permanent deal, however he reportedly turned them down because of all the off the field issues taking place. 

When contacted for comment on the issue, Sangweni’s agent, Ryan Hartslief, said, “I don’t really want to talk too much about Thami’s situation, but I can confirm that he has decided to leave Chippa United and seek a more stable environment elsewhere.” 

Sangweni, who has started just two games since the turn of the year, will now begin his search for a new club as he looks ahead to the 2015/16 campaign and playing regular football once again.
