Chippa United’s record-breaking interim coach Morgan Mammila believes his recent achievements make him a threat in domestic football and would reach record-breaking heights if given a chance at Mamelodi Sundowns.
Mammila has just completed a CAF C course hosted by SAFA Ekurhuleni Region and attended by Khabo Zondo, Esrom Nyandoro, David Mathebula, Musa Nyatama, Thela Ngobeni, Matsemela Thoka , Bernard Parker, Happy Jele, and Manqoba ‘Shakes’ Ngwenya amongst some prominent names.
The Chippa mentor completed the course having won four, lost one and drawn one in his first six matches as a coach at the Chilli Boys where he became the first coach to win four consecutive games in the club's top-flight history.
Mammila had been an administrator at the club prior to taking over from Daine Klate in September.
"If you are a nobody people never will ever be bothered about you but when you are a threat people will talk," Mammila tells KickOff.
"There are many coaches who have been coaching with D licences for years, but nothing was ever said about them.
"Some other coaches cannot sit on the bench for CAF matches but they have coached in the PSL for many years, but nothing is said about them.
"But then because Morgan is from Limpopo and has achieved one two three with Baroka having identified this and that player then it’s an issue.
"I have dealt with criminals before as a police officer so don’t tell me about normal human beings.
"I can’t be bothered by non-criminal civilians sitting in the comfort of a studio, drinking water and just talking," says Mammila.
"Has there ever been a new coach in the PSL who won four games in a row?
"I’m not from Zola or Meadowlands but I feel I can compete fairly on the field of play.
"Some coaches never won a match at this club where I’m now coach.
"If you give me Sundowns I can win 10 games in a row.
"I will even win 20 games in a row but anyway this is life, and we will never achieve with the same modus operandi.
"Some can only achieve at Sundowns because there is everything.
"Take the same coaches to Baroka and take the same coaches to Golden Arrows and see if they can win a cup or anything.
"Okay, football is about learning every day and I have been learning all along just like I’m still learning up to now," he details.
Chippa return to training on Monday with Mammila set to enrol for the CAF B Licence next year.
