It may come as no surprise to some football followers, but Chippa United have sacked another coach.

The latest victim in the firing line was caretaker coach Duran Francis, who was at the helm for only two matches.

Chairman Siviwe Mpengesi has a reputation for being trigger happy when it comes to the sacking of coaches, but this one was extremely fast, even by his standards.

The strange thing is that Francis drew his first match against Bloemfontein Celtic.

However, Briefly.co.za noted that his second match was the 1-0 loss they suffered at the hands of Maritzburg United, who happen to be coached by Chippa's former mentor, Eric Tinkler.

Sambu's first game in charge will be against Bidvest Wits on Tuesday.
