Chippa appoint permanent coach



“We have found our man,” says Chippa United who, on Tuesday, confirmed the appointment of Farouk Abrahams as permanent coach.

The ‘Chilli Boys’, as Chippa are affectionately known, confirmed the appointment of caretaker coach Abrahams on a fulltime basis in a statement sent out to the media.

“This was not a difficult decision to make, from the chairman and the management’s point of view, because of the stability that he has brought to the team. He understands the vision, type of football and the direction that the team would like to pursue,” the club said.

Abrahams took over the reins from Roger Sikhakhane, who had been recalled to the club to replace the axed Manqoba Mnqithi, and so far he has done well to rally the boys after coaching turmoil.

“He has been given a two-and-a-half-year contract. He will also be overseeing our development structure, so as to produce young talent that is able to compete at an international level,” the club added.

Abrahams announced his arrival as caretaker coach by guiding his charges to a 2-2 draw against SuperSport United, despite playing the last 20 minutes with 10 men after Buyani Sali was sent off.
