Chippa United owner Siviwe Mpengesi says football runs in the DNA of new head coach Teboho Moloi.
Moloi returned to the club this week as a caretaker coach, having only left a month ago following a brief stint working under his predecessor Dan Malesela.
Malesela was sacked in the wake of a 3-1 loss to Baroka on Tuesday and has since been linked with a move to Polokwane City.
"We are delighted to welcome Mr Teboho Moloi back to the football club, now as caretaker coach," said Mpengesi of the Orlando Pirates legend and ex-Buccaneers assistant coach.
"Mr Moloi comes from a football family and football runs in his DNA. He is a servant of the game and fully deserves this opportunity.
"He is a passionate, thoughtful, an innovative professional who possesses the skills, experience and personality to succeed at this job.
"When I bring someone to the club I do not look at them as an employee, but as a member of the family. I welcome Mr Moloi to the Chippa United family and we have no doubt that he can work with us to take this football club to greater heights.
"He will be fully supported by the management and everyone at the club to ensure that we create the best possible environment for him to thrive in this job and help us take the vision of the club forward. He is passionate about the Chippa United brand and has embraced our vision and of course theme for the season, #SeasonOfVictory."
Mpengesi added: "As the only Eastern Cape club in the Premier Soccer League, Chippa United remains the hope and pride of this province and I am delighted that the coach also understands that there is more we can do to develop local talent. We must give back to the people of this province for the support they have given us."
Moloi will come up against bottom-of-the-log Platinum Stars at Royal Bafokeng Stadium tomorrow in his first assignment.
