Former Bloemfontein Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb has opened up on why his miserable stay with Chippa United was cut short just a few months in.
Tignyemb spent 12 seasons in the City of Roses with Celtic before joining the Chilli Boys in July 2019.
However, after only six months with the club, Tignyemb was released from his contract with the Port Elizabeth club.
Speaking to Soccer Laduma edition 1176, the 34-year-old opens up on his relationship with coach Norman Mapeza and why things did not work out as he had planned.
“We were having a special training programme which was special for the goalkeepers, so everything was perfect. We were training and focused on goalkeeping movement, goalkeeping training, everything was together for me to perform you understand? But when the new coach came, there was a new structure and everything changed.
“We started running (around) like headless chickens. We started losing our manner of goalkeeping. It disturbed so many things but like I said I don’t hold any grudges against anyone in football,” Tignyemb said.
The Cameroonian also discusses:
- His relationship with Chippa Mpengesi
- His failed relationship with Norman Mapeza
- The coach he regards as his father
