Mapeza Reveals Why He Left Chippa United

Former FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza said he resigned from the position of head coach at Chippa United because he does not feel he is the right man to guide the club to the attainment of its objectives.

In his resignation letter leaked to South African media, the former Monomotapa and Warriors coach wrote to Chippa United:

I hereby give notice to terminate my contract with Chippa United with immediate effect.

- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -

It is my view that the team is in need of a new voice. As it stands, I do not feel I am able to get the team where it is expected to be for reasons including, but not limited to, the short amount of time I have worked with the team vis-à-vis the expectation of the club and its management.

The club may benefit from new set of hands with a different skill set and coaching approach.

It is my hope that we can reach mutual agreement pertaining to the termination of this contract and severe the relationship in an amicable way.

Meanwhile, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, the club’s main sponsors were not happy with the manner of Mapeza’s departure.

The municipality’s mayor, Marlon Daniels accused the club of what he called a lack of visionary leadership, a clumsy management style and an obvious lack of understanding of the business of football.

  1. nelson mandela bay municipality is a coward ,if they were so concerned about the resignation of MAPEZA, why dint they intervene, since they claim to be the main sponsor of the club, Coach mapeza was the best thing that chippa had had in recent times, its high time the club is kicked out of the PSL


  3. I HAVE A SUGGESTION TO KZN CLUBS… can you consider Coach Mapeza in your books for the coming new season, this man is a gem, he knows how to turn around a club on a shoestring budget to great things….. considering that he is now available..and he will be involved from pre-season, any coach can attest to that… pre-season is a very important component , it sets the tone for the new season
