Tignyemb Blasts Mapeza: You Are Not Mourinho

Former Chippa United goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb has launched a scathing social media attack on his former coach Norman Mapeza.

It is clear as day that the two never saw eye-to-eye, Tignyemb was signed by the club in July, and hit the ground running in Port Elizabeth.

However, upon Mapeza’s appointment as Chilli Boys head coach, the veteran Ivorian was relegated to the bench and played second fiddle to preferred first-choice Veli Mothwa.

Now, with both Mapeza and Tigyemb having departed from the club, the 34-year-old had took to Instagram and had some words of choice for his former coach’s tactics, reminding him that he is not Jose Mourinho.

“You are an 'international' coach, you played in Turkey but don’t know when to make the players run, when to give them rest. Your keepers are running like infield players, we don’t have proper rest. You know everything, you don’t want to be told... my friend, even Mourinho asks for advice, and the last time I checked you are not Mourinho!

"A good coach creates a good relationship with his players, creates a good environment for the team to work, but you want to treat people like gladiators. We train (for) 2 hours in the heat without drinking water, go and do it in your country, not in South Africa. We having an evening game 19h30 but at 09h00 in the morning you are busy running, my friend go back to (coaching) courses,” an ice cold Tignyemb said.
