Norman Mapeza will be the new coach of Chippa United. The situation at the club has not changed much, although the arrival of Zimbabwe coaches has been announced. Norman previously worked with Porth Elizabeth after leaving Clinton Larsen. His arrival didn’t change the team at least when it comes to the match against the Bidwest Wits. No changes occurred because Norman didn’t lead the game against the Bidwest Wits.
Mapeza, meanwhile, will have the help of assistant coach Mbuyiselo Sambu, who should lead the Chili Boys early in the season. Sambu should help the team collect the first three points. That was decided after coach Duran Francis would take over the other job. Norman coached the FC Platinum football club for a while until he left. During his five-year tenure, he was able to win the league titles in the 2017/2018 season with the club. Chippa United’s management has confirmed that the new coach has signed a three-year contract.
