Ordinarily, the club would be expected to be in a panic mode by now under current circumstances due to their history of changing coaches frequently but sources have confirmed that chairman Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi isn’t pressing panic button yet.
“The club is pleased with the progress made under the current technical team and there is no reason to panic. The team is playing well, and even against Sundowns the team did well but was just unfortunate to lose,” said the source.
Mammila has led the Gqeberha-based outfit to four wins, two draws and three losses since taking over from football legend Daine Klate in September.
