What Next For Chippa?
Posted: 26 December 2020
DSTV Premiership side Chippa United have had one of the most colourful and embarrassing week in the history of South African football and are delighted to see the back-end of the past seven days.
The Chilli Boys, beaten 3-1 by AmaZulu FC last weekend, twenty four hours later suspended then head-coach Lehlohonolo Seema in a flamboyant manner through electronic mail.
The club’s owner Siviwe Chippa Mpengesi pulled the trigger on Seema on Tuesday just after lunch time, and a couple of hours later confirmed the appointment of Luc Eymael, much to the despair of South African- loving football supporters.
In another twist, the South African Football Association released a statement confirming that they object the appointment of the Belgian in Port Elizabeth and will write to Home Affairs to interject Eymael’s working permit.
On Thursday, the club then released a press release saying they have evoked the appointment of the former Free State Stars man. As of today, at around 14:45pm, The Beautiful Game has been led to believe that Dan Dance Malesela has made contact with the club about the possibility of returning to the trigger-happy team.
We can also confirm that Dan Dance is part of a three-man shortlist and is leading the race to become the next head coach at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium.
