Mapeza comments on the possibility of being sacked at Chippa

Chippa United coach Norman Mapeza has for the first time commented on the possibilty of being sacked as the Chilli Boys coach.

The Port Elizabeth-based side are winless in the current campaign and anchor the ABSA Premiership table, a situation which has not improved after Mapeza took over.

The former FC Platinum coach,  who has overseen three defeats since he took over the reigns at Chippa, understands his predicament and is realistic on his chances of surviving on the job.

“You know in this industry you know there will be a day you resign or be sacked as a coach,” he told South African publication Kick Off. 

“When I came here I just wanted to have a feel of this environment. If tomorrow the owner of the club [Chippa Mpengesi] says ‘look you’ve failed’ I would take that and go with my head up. At least I’ve shown people a little bit of myself.”

“I won’t leave this place with my head down, no. I will go back to Zimbabwe and rest. Maybe I will get another opportunity somewhere. As coaches we are always on the move.” added Mapeza.
