Ex-Chippa coach warns the next one

Former Chippa United coach Joel Masutha has given advice to anyone who is thinking about taking the coaching job at the club.

The Chilli Boys have changed coaches twice in the space of two weeks, with Clinton Larsen being first to get the boot and Duran Francis lasting just two matches as an interim coach.

Masutha, who is now coaching Real Kings in the GladAfrica Championship, shared a little advice on coaching Chippa Mpengesi's team.

"You just need to go there with a laptop and the tracksuit you're wearing, don't bring anything else," he said.

Chippa has now had 20 coaches since 2011 and five of those were caretakers.

The most experienced player in the team, Andile Mbenyane, admitted after their match against Maritzburg United on Friday night that the instability affects the players.

"It's really affecting us. You could see our performance especially in the first half, the way we were playing, players are down, we are not okay, we also feel that pain," he said.

Mbuyiselo Sambu will take charge of the team when they host Bidvest Wits at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium tonight (19h30) as the Port Elizabeth side finalises a deal for a new head coach.
