Morgan Mammila has decided to call time on his coaching career following a brief but entertaining stint as Chippa United head coach.
The football administrator turned coach took over at the Chilli Boys in October 2022 and started brightly, registering four straight wins before results took a nose dive after the FIFA World Cup break in November and December.
"I have taken a decision to retire from Coaching with the achievements that you have helped me achieve with your team," said Mammila in a letter addressed to club chairman Siviwe Mpengesi.
Mammila was earlier this week replaced by Kurt Lentjies, leaving Chippa just above the relegation places, after registering only one win in his last 10 matches in charge.
In the letter, he further wrote: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for identifying my coaching talent.
"Also, for appointing me as head coach of your team, Chippa United football club, without being advised by anyone.
"I really want to congratulate you for making me the first-ever coach to win four games in a row at Chippa United.
"I feel honoured for being a coach at your team for the past fourteen (14) DStv Premiership matches. In which there were five wins, four draws, five losses, 17 goals scored, and also took the team to the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup.
