Chippa United appoint Farouk Abrahams full-time

Posted: 11 December 2012 Time: 15:35

Farouk Abrahams has been rewarded for his solid job as Chippa United’s caretaker coach by getting the role on a permanent basis.

Abrahams took over after the sacking of Roger Sikhakane, who himself returned to the hotseat after Manqoba Mngqithi last just a handful of games.

But the appointment of Abrahams has finally bought some stability to the club, who have since managed to beat high-flying Platinum Stars and hold both Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United to draws.

The club said in a statement: “This was not a difficult decision to make from the chairman and the management’s point of view because of the stability that he has brought to the team. He understands the vision, type of football and the direction that as a team would like to pursue.

“He has been given a two-and-a-half-year contract. He will also be overseeing our development structure so as to produce young talent that is able to compete at an international level.”

I was one of the critics of Chippa Mpengesi but now I have a different view. He always knew what his team is capable of. Pity people like Manqoba Mqithi was to impose their own ideologies on the team while Sikhakhane never had the respect of the senior players.

Mpengesi has always advocated attacking football because he knew that his team plays better when playing open football. Manqoba on the other end wanted to absorb pressure first before playing counter-attack. With Solomons on the bench everyone can see that Chippa United is going to skin many a team this season. They play much better than some of the established team.
