This PSL club has gained the reputation for his short fuse when it comes to hiring and firing coaches. His club recently survived relegation and many speculated that thus would be the wake up call he needed to change his way of running the club. It seems like the wishes has been granted as he announced the signing of former Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt and it is reported that there are plans that have been put in place for the long term. This is definitely a step in the right direction and it interesting to see where it will go.
Chippa Mpengesi sat down for an interview with Thabiso Mosia on SA-Fm on Wednesday afternoon. He discussed the signing of Gavin Hunt and he also revealed some more on his relationship with Dan Malesela. The Chippa United boss also shared that he plans to have Gavin Hunt for a long time at his club and hopes they will achieve the mandate which is to survive relegation for the next season and start to challenge in a few years time while building a solid squad.
"People always ask why Dan keeps coming back to Chippa. It's because I look after my coaches very well . They get good packages here. You can go ask them."-Chippa Mpengesi on #SAFMSportOn
Chippa Mpengesi shared that people always ask him why Dan Malesela always comes to his club even though he had fired him multiple times. The Eastern Cape based boss shared that the reason behind this is the fact that he takes care of his coaches financially. He also dared those who don't believe to go and ask as he boasted that his coaches always receive good packages and I'm guessing that it is so good that coaches can't resist coming to him despite his reputation.
Gavin Hunt is an experienced manager and it will be interesting to see wether he will able to work under Chippa Mpengesi. He managed to get Kaizer Chiefs to CAF Champions league semifinals, however he didn't have a good season domestically and we know that patience will be something that he won't be given much of at Chippa United.
