Absa Premiership’s trigger happy boss Chippa Mpengesi has a new head coach.
The club known as the Chilly Boys have appointed their second coach of the season after seven games. Last season’s relegation-surviving hero, Clinton Larsen, lost the head coaching position after starting the term with five games without a win.
In came Duran Francis who was dramatically dismissed after two winless games. The club’s notoriously impatient boss (20 coaches in eight years), todayconfirmed Norman Mapeza as his new man.
"We are happy to have a coach like Mapeza and we congratulate him. Not only is he highly experienced but also he is highly regarded by colleagues in the football fraternity," said Mpengesi to Kick Off.
"He brings a wealth of experience that will no doubt inspire the players and will take the team to greater heights."
