There has been a sudden twist at Chippa United in the aftermath of the club’s six game winless streak with Kurt Lentjies returning to serve on the club’s technical team again.

Chippa have gone through trying times of late under Morgan Mammila failing to win in six games and picking up just three points from the 18 available to play for.

This has contrasted with the cruise that they enjoyed in Mammila’s first four games when they collected all 12 points at stake.

With the recent struggles for points and goals with three in the last four matches, the club has turned to Lentjies as an addition to the technical team despite club boss Siviwe Mpengesi pointing out how the 37-year-old had showed the club the middle finger in leaving after the appointment of Daine Klate at the start of this season.

Lentjies will work as second assistant under Mammila in a technical team that also has Siyabulela Gwambi as first assistant, Mswazi Tshabalala as goalkeeper coach, Jameson Yale as physiotherapist, and Lisa Benjamin as conditioning coach.

Worth noting is that when Lentjies was the head coach last season after taking over from Gavin Hunt, Mammila sat on the bench as an assistant.

Lentjies started working in his new role on Tuesday.
