    Mngqithi new Chippa coach 

    Chippa United was only founded two years ago and has achieved the huge leap to the Premier League for the coming season. They were promoted after a recent playoff and will, no doubt, be signing big talent in the coming weeks.

    Manqoba Mngqithi has been signed for a one year contract as head coach of the up and coming side. His previous appointments include Golden Arrows and AmaZulu.

    Interestingly, he has been signed to replace Roger Sikhakane – the man who lead the Cape side to promotion. The Chilli Boys have a long road ahead but are gaining more fans on a daily basis.

    Chippa United promoted 

    Chippa United is a wildly popular side in their home base of the Cape Flats. It has taken just two seasons for club owner, Chippa Mpengesi, to achieve his dream of fielding a side in the local premier league, known as the Premier Soccer League.

    The Cape side won promotion to the PSL with an excellent victory over Santos 4-3 at the Philippi Stadium on Saturday, 30 June 2012.

    Santos have unfortunately now been relegated to the First Division.

    Euro 2012 Final 

    Congratulations Spain! The Spanish side thrashed Italy by 4 goals with no reply on Sunday, 1 July 2012, retaining their title.

    What a way to start the month of July and become the first team to win three back-to-back major tournaments.

    The brilliance of “Super Mario” Balotelli, which saw the Italians triumph over Germany in the semi-finals, was not enough to overcome the patient possession game of Spain.

    Spain was already ahead by 2-0 when Italy was reduced to ten players on the field. Thiago Motta limped off the field injured and unable to continue. The Italian coach Cesare Prandelli had already used all his available substitutions and Italy were not virtually reduced to spectators for the rest of the match.

    Italy had managed a 1-1 draw in their opening group game against Spain, but on the day of the final, Spain was able to find something extra and prove that they are currently the international football side to beat.

    New coach for Bafana Bafana 

    Gordon Igesund has confirmed as the new coach of the South African national football side.

    The 55-year-old coach, cut his teeth as player-coach at Witbank Black Aces during the 1986 season and he is known for making practical decisions. When he arrived at Moroka Swallows early in 2011, he quickly signed new players to deal with perceived weaknesses in that side, saving them from relegation.

    He has also coached at Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns with great success and later at Free State Stars with far less success.

    He has won four league titles with four different clubs, which makes him the most successful coach in local soccer. We say it is about time that he is given the opportunity to coach the national side and we wish him every success.
