Mammila reveals Leopards interest

Premiership

Black Leopards are looking at bringing in Morgan Mammila to be part of their management team.

Mammila resigned as Chippa United coach earlier this week and has revealed that Leopards have expressed an interest in having him on board.

"I love football. You can see me at any team now, anytime now in another PSL team. It's so humbling when the other chairmen call you and say 'Morgan come to me'. I'm grateful," Mammila tells KickOff.com.

“Yes I had a call from another chairman from Polokwane...it's not Polokwane City, there's three teams in Polokwane [laughs]. Black Leopards chairman called me and said whenever I'm in Polokwane we can talk, but I'm not in a rush to make decisions you know. I will just go and sit at home, then we'll take it from there."

Mammila, who still has a soft spot for his former side Baroka FC, says he won't hesitate going back to the club if he were to receive a call from chairman Khurishi Mphahlele.

"You know that team [Baroka] they have a special place in my heart. I was there when we were in the NFD, when we fought to be in the PSL. I was there when we started in the PSL, I was there when we won the [Telkom] Cup. I will never, I will never, I will never in my life abandon Baroka. I will never turn my back to Baroka.

“Baroka is my brother's team, it's a family team to me and it's part and parcel of my history. It makes me who I am. People know me because of Baroka. So it's a family business to me and surely nobody would sit and watch while his family is drowning."

Asked if he would consider bringing back Mammila back to the club, Baroka chairman Khurishi Mphahlele said: "The season is finished. We are left with only four games, but we are not ruling out anything concerning his come back next season, We are not ruling out anything."
