The Chilli Boys have now announced Thabo September and Kwanele Kopo will take over as the co-coaches. Both have had stints at SuperSport United with September recently in charge of the Matsatsantsa DStv Diski Challenge side.

“In a strategic move to bolster our club’s vision and future, our current head coach, who has admirably led the team for 16 games and secured 18 points, will be transitioning into the role of Technical Director for the remainder of the season. This change allows us to leverage his extensive experience and knowledge in a role that is crucial for the club’s long-term strategy and success,” the club said.

“The Club welcomes Thabo September and Kwanele Kopo, both highly respected figures in the football community, as our new co-coaches. Thabo September, a former professional player, brings a wealth of on-field experience and understanding of the game. Kwanele Kopo, born and bred in Uitenhage, Eastern Cape, and renowned as a teacher of the game, offers an unparalleled depth of tactical expertise.

“Together, they will lead our team with a focus on nurturing local talent. Ensuring the team remains in the Premier Soccer League. Chippa United has always been more than just a football club. Since our arrival from Phillipi, Cape Town to Gqeberha, Eastern Cape in 2014. We have not only been a part of this province but have become integral to its sporting culture.”

“Our 14-year journey in the football space has been marked by a steadfast commitment to not only compete in the PSL. But to enrich the Eastern Cape by showcasing local talent. We take pride in players like Zuko Mdunyelwa from Jamestown in the Joe Gqabi municipality, who have showcased their talent and are now signed to the football giants Mamelodi Sundowns F.C.”
