Bloemfontein Celtic legendary goalkeeper Patrick Tingyemb, has confirmed that he had a serious fallout with Norman Mapeza.
While Tignyemb suddenly left Chippa United and many of his fans were left with big question marks in February, the Cameroonian has now finally come out to explain what really happened in Port Elizabeth.
“There was a new structure and everything changed. We started running like headless chickens,” the 34-year-old told Soccer Laduma.
“We started losing our manner of goalkeeping. It disturbed so many things, but like I said, I don’t hold any grudges to (against) anyone in football.
The outspoken and temperamental goalkeeper, who does work as a part-time pastor with his congregation in Bloemfontein, concluded to say that the whole fallout was purely on personal principles.
“Our relationship was not good and it was not bad. I am a person who tells the truth when I see something. I told him the truth, that the way he was doing things was completely wrong.
“When he says go right, we go right without asking any questions. I am not that kind of person. I have to ask questions and I need answers. If you don’t give me answers, I won’t be able to follow you perfectly. Even if I follow you, I won’t give my 100% because you did not give me proper answers,” he concluded.
