Sikhakhane back for Chippa

Chippa United have confirmed that Roger Sikhakhane is back with the team

Posted: 13 September 2012 Time: 1:57 pm

Chippa United have confirmed that Roger Sikhakhane is back with the team as head coach and is expected to be on the bench when the team faces Bidvest Wits on Sunday.

Sikhakhane, who never left the payroll of the club, will be on the bench for the Absa Premiership clash against BidVest Wits on Sunday, having recovered from the ‘personal problems’ which saw him leave the club at the end of last season having led them to promotion.

He was replaced by Manqoba Mngqithi, who was fired after just two matches, with club boss Chippa Mpengesi claiming he was simply “not a good fit” for the club.

Sikhakhane will be assisted by Julius Dube, who was in caretaker charge of the club for their 0-0 draw at Black Leopards last time out, and former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper coach Farouk Abrahams.

“I worked with the team last season so I know the big job that I have ahead,” Sikhakhane said on Thursday. “I want to try by all means to take this team to the top eight.”

Mpengesi explained Sikhakhane had left at the end of the last campaign because he had personal problems at home in Durban. But refused to elaborate.

“We know what he is capable of and we were sad when he went away. We are confident is ready to take over again and so he is officially reinstated as head coach.

“Roger is part of the family, we are planning to groom him and help him get all the qualifications he needs because we believe he is one of the best young coaches in this country.”

Why did they let him go at the first place. Chilli boys will go down. Lets see what Skhakhane can bring in PSL.

Defence force chiefs do those calculations again. You are misleading the nation, but why chiefs supporters can't count, but when they go for shop lifting they know how many dry fruits & bluemas to steal?

I like this team unlike many people around here. Like many people have said in the past we are used to praising mediocracy. That is not a case with Chippa I think that is were Mr Mqithi got it wrong.

Mr Chipa is a Legend his achievements says that a lot. I love soccer Kaizer chiefs fan not related to Chipa united, one thing for sure one of the reasons why newly promoted teams get relegetated is they settle for less up until its too late. This thing of a team because is newly promoted must get a hidding first and then maybe survive relegation and try again next season is not a secret to succes. Beleiving you deserve to be there with the best and settling for nothing less is key not only in soccer but in all aspects of life. Mr Mgithi was obviously going to try to groom youngsters get a hiding at Chippa's expense and say but I groomed so and so unacceptable to Chippa for that a glass Bells.

Mr Chippa fired a troublesome coach about a month ago. Since then Chipa has only played one game, prove me wrong on that but I think that gave his charges enough time to get a replacement. The only time one will normally get such space of time to regroup is during pre season and during our summer break. This man Chipa is very smart, what I like about him, he spent little time trying to impress he only focuses at his goals.
