Defending league champions Chicken Inn could be facing a battle to keep head coach Joey Antipas Soccer24 can exclusively reveal.

Antipas lead the Gamecocks to their first ever league title last season and have already started the 2016 season well.

His success in the ZPSL has seen him attract the attention of an unnamed South African National First Division (NFD) side who are keen on his services.

“A National First Division side is keen to sign Antipas an impeccable source close to the negotiations told Soccer24. “They are very interested and have been impressed with what he has done in Zimbabwe and want him in SA.

“He could be leading them into the ABSA Premiership as the side is chasing promotion. They want to bring him in June the source added.

Teams that are currently chasing promotion are Baroka FC, Highlands Park ,Witbank Spurs and Milano United

Antipas’ contract is set to expire this year and is yet to renew it. Chicken Inn’s may need to offer a lucrative offer to keep away competition.
