- Norman Mapeza has reportedly resigned as the coach of Chippa United
- His resignation comes only two days after he led the team to victory against AmaZulu FC
- Mapeza joined the Eastern Cape premiership side in October last year
Chippa United has reportedly lost another coach. Only five months after joining the Eastern Cape premiership side, Norman Mapeza has quit.
TimesLIVE reported Mapeza resigned as the team's coach on Monday night despite attempts by Chippa United's bosses to convince him to stay.
According to reports, Mapeza quit over contractual issues only days after steering the team to victory against AmaZulu FC.
Briefly.co.za reported in October last year that Siviwe Mpengesi appointed Norman Mapeza as the club's new head coach following the sacking of Duran Francis after just two matches.
The Zimbabwean, who was previously in charge at FC Platinum based in his home country, originally signed a three-year deal with Chippa United.
The team has been struggling with holding down a coach for more than just a couple of months and Mzansi's reactions to Mapeza walking were savage.
Twitter user, @MbeksZA, commented:
"This team doesn't deserve a coach."
Another tweep, @SPK_FAN, wrote:
"We told him not to offload all his luggage first time he arrived at @ChippaUnitedFC but he never listened."
Meanwhile, in other football-related news, Itu Khune revealed his future plans and it does not include going to another team.
Responding to a fan who suggested Khune join the Orlando Pirates, the 'number one' goalkeeper said he would retire at Kaizer Chiefs.
