Patrick Mayo: I can’t risk my boys’ future

Posted: 22 October 2014 Time: 11:10

Former Chippa United employee Patrick Mayo tells that he put his two boys first instead of his job when he decided to take Khanyisa and Khanyisile to SuperSport United.

Mayo, who was until recently serving as an assistant coach to Chippa United’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge team, was sacked by the Chilli Boys after his decision to take the boys to Matsatsantsa.
The Chilli Boys’ chairman Chippa Mpengesi was left fuming and slammed Mayo for not being loyal. However, Mayo senior insists he is satisfied with the decision that he took to secure the boys’ future at a stable club.
“I did what’s best for my kids,” he tells this website.
“I couldn’t risk their future and it is not like I was desperate for a job. I worked there [at Chippa] for one month, so it is not like I was there for four or five months. Life goes on,” Mayo continues.
Meanwhile, Mayo has confirmed that he’s yet to receive the boys’ clearances from Chippa United and as a result, he will get in touch with the club’s general manager Wanda Mbenguzana to get their papers.
“We must get the clearances from Chippa because the boys were registered to play in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge. Chippa asked for their tracksuits and that was returned. The boys are still in PE [Port Elizabeth] and they will move to SuperSport United when they are finished writing their exams,” he adds.

Chippa leads by emotions, that's why no prefessional coach can stand him, it's just a pity money can't buy brains.

Chippa United is a mickey mouse team and you have to take your boys to the team with a vision. Good move Khosi.

Ngqondo MaKenzo OlifantsfonteinPiratesBranch the only analysis that i can give you pirates almost won that game if Aces did not score more than them. When VV introduced Majoro, the two strikers were playing too far from each other. There were too much big a gap between midfielders and strikers. Pirates in the last 15 minutes were playing long balls. Aces have better quality players than pirates.

Taking your boys where its good is  the right thing to do, how you do it is another thing because you need to teach the very same boys how to handle themselves in life

"I couldn’t risk their future and it is not like I was desperate for a job" about arrogance.

Soccer is a funny business, your boys might find themselves having to go back to chippa in the near future. You better hope they do well at ssu.

SisterP The first sentence I completely disagree with you, a team cannot almost win when they have lost, it was a draw then I was going to agree with you.

The other part of your analysis you are spot on, especially the quality of players.
