Chippa United have fired their fifth coach of the season, with former Zimbabwean international Wilfred Mugeyi becoming the latest casualty at the club.

According to the Soccer-laduma website, the crew reported last week that the coach was on thin ice at the club.

A string of poor results has kept the Chilli Boys firmly rooted at the bottom of the PSL, and after a meeting on Thursday it was decided that Mugeyi and technical director, Roger Sikhakhane, would be relieved of their duties.

Mugeyi confirmed his exit from Chippa with Soccer-Laduma: “Unfortunately, there’s no more going forward because I got sacked today. You are the first to know that. I wasn’t told the reason.

“Chippa sent Wanda (Mbenguzana) to tell me the news. Roger has been fired as well.”

It remains to be seen who will be brought in to replace Mugeyi at the helm of the club. However, whichever man is given the poisoned chalice which has 16 points from 24 games, is probably on its way out of South Africa’s top tier of football.

Mugeyi was engaged in January to replace Farouk Abrahams, the fourth coach to be fired by the club.

Mugeyi leaves that club after signing former Warriors captain Benjani Mwaruwari who had been job searching since last year.

The former Manchester City and Portsmouth forward has already opened his scoring account.
