Mammila Remains Mum On Why He Left Chippa

Caretaker coach Morgan Mammila has refused to shed light on his exit with Chippa United.  

Mammila was let go a few weeks after the season’s conclusion, having been deployed as a technical director in January.  

That happened after the arrival of Kwanele Kopo and Thabo September, who were appointed as co-coaches.  

Then Mammila was moved to the technical director role that was left vacant by Vusi Vilakazi.   

“Nothing went wrong, and maybe it was just time for me to go back home, and I’m happy to be home,” clarified Mammila.  

After partying ways with Chippa, Mammila quickly emerged as the new Baroka caretaker coach, days after Dan Malesela was dismissed as Baroka head coach. This after Baroka lost 1-0 to the University of Pretoria in the first game of the PSL promotion and relegation playoffs.  

The former Chippa coach explained his appointment saying, “No, no, this was not a job I was eyeing, remember I was at home, I was at home relaxing,” he said.  

“I am at home, there is no better place than home, I am home.”  

Mammila’s first game in charge of Baroka in these playoffs was a goalless draw against Richards Bay this past weekend and this has led them to be sitting third on the table with a single point off.  

The former Baroka CEO remains hopeful things might change ahead of their encounter with Tuks on Wednesday.  

“If you ask them, Richards Bay, are you in (retained the status)? They will say no. If you ask Tuks, are you in? They will say no, so nobody is in now…Wednesday will decide whether who’s in or who’s out,” claimed Mammila  

A win for Baroka against AmaTuks on Wednesday will make things interesting in the mini-league and potentially see them jumping to the first spot.
