Former Baroka and Chippa United CEO Morgan Mammila has resurfaced at GladAfrica Championship side Royal Eagles.
Mammila is well known for his role in helping Bakgaga gain promotion to the Absa Premiership in 2016 and the 2018 Telkom Knockout Cup Triumph.
He says he couldn’t resist a call from Sbu Mpisane.
“Mr Sbu Mpisane approached me stressing about his team’s position. After some deep thoughts I decided to help him.
“I have learnt a lot in my 6 years’ experience in professional football. I have managed a champion team from NFD to Absa Premiership and also managed a team winning the NFD play offs. I also have managed a team to win Telkom Cup and Q-Innovation in the Absa Premiership.”
Royal Eagles are bottom of the GladAfrica Championship log after losing three games and drawing two in their five games.
Mammila comes in at a time when Eagles parted ways with Richard Makhoba (general manager) and Morena Ramorebodi (coach), who both quit the club.

GladAfrica Championship side Royal Eagles are in search of a new coach following the resignation of Morena Ramoreboli.
He was in charge for just over a month after taking over from Joel Masutha, who opted to join Real Kings.
Ramoreboli’s departure comes just days after FARPost.co.za reported that Richard Makhoba had quit as manager of the club.
Ramoreboli, who’s far left on the picture, couldn’t be reached for a comment despite repeated calls to him.

Football administrator Richard Makhoba has confirmed his resignation from GladAfrica Championship side, Royal Eagles.
FARPost.co.za got wind of the latest developments this morning.
Eagles are rooted at the bottom of the standings with three points from five matches so far in the 2019/2020 campaign.
“The story is true. I have resigned from the club with immediate effect from yesterday. I wish the club all the best and life has to go on,” Makhoba commented.
He wasn’t keen on delving into matters that led him to quit and walk away.
“I want to remain as professional as I could possibly do. I’m not going to be… look, there is no bad blood.
“I spoke to the chairman (Sbu Mpisane) this morning and I sent him a message. We are okay,”=” added Makhoba, whoalso previously worked for Richards Bay and United FC.
Eagles, meanwhile, are battling to find their wings this season.
They came close to winning automatic promotion last term, but settled for second spot behind eventual winners, Stellenbosch.
Eagles also failed to make it through the PSL Promotion PlayOffs that were won by Maritzburg United.
It doesn’t help their cause that the much publicised divorce between Sbu and Shauwn Mpisane has led to a breakaway by the latter, who’s now in charge of another GladAfrica Championship side, Real Kings.
