Football coach Vusumuzi Vilakazi has resigned as the technical director of Chippa United.
This move comes less than two months after he left his position at Golden Arrows.
His departure from Golden Arrows surprised many as the club was performing well at the time of his resignation.
In a statement on Thursday night, Chippa United expressed their shock at Vilakazi’s sudden departure.
The club said, “Chippa United FC wishes to announce that Vusumuzi Vilakazi has resigned from his position as technical director.
“While his tenure with us was unexpectedly brief, we respect Mr Vusumuzi’s decision to step down.
“Mr Vilakazi’s decision has indeed come as a surprise as we had looked forward to longer collaboration, drawing on his fresh perspective and youthful vigour.
“However, we respect his choice to pursue the next chapter in his professional journey.
“In moving forward, we thank Mr Vilakazi for his service and close this chapter with mutual respect and goodwill.”
More co-coach woes
Meanwhile, head coach Morgan Mammila will once again lead the Chilli Boys alone, following the surprising departure of assistant coach Siyabulela Gwambi.
The reason behind Gwambi’s departure is still unknown.
The Gqeberha-based outfit is expected to continue experiencing changes in coaching personnel throughout the season.
Chippa United have been struggling and their last victory was in late September against SuperSport United where they won 1-0.
They will be hoping to return to winning ways when they host Stellenbosch FC at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. Kick-off on Saturday night is at 8pm.
