You be the judge – Mapeza


Chippa United coach Norman Mapeza has refused to take credit for the sudden change of fortunes at the Eastern Cape side.

The Zimbabwean took over at the Chilli Boys in October while the team was languishing at the bottom of the Absa Premiership log.

A great run of form under the 47-year-old has seen Chippa jump into 10th position but Mapeza says he does not want to create an impression that he talks too much if he blow his own trumpet.

“You know sometimes if I say much people are going to say I talk too much, you have seen the changes and I have also seen a bit of changes but I think you have seen much than me because you have been here before” He said.

Mapeza also insists his team is still fighting to survive relegation and are not contenders for a top 8 spot.

“No we are fighting to survive relegation. We don’t want to put ourselves under pressure and say let’s go to top 8 No. The set objective for us this season is to survive relegation”

The Chilli Boys are one point below the top 8 spot and 3 points above bottom paced Baroka. They face Martizburg United next on Saturday 11 January at home.
