    Amazulu for top four finish 

    The coach of Amazulu insists that talk in the camp is about securing a top eight finish, despite reports to the contrary.

    Last week, the general manager of Amazulu, Peter O’Connor, that the target for the 2012/2013 season was to finish in the top four. He maintained that the pressure was on the Swedish manager Roger Palmgren to deliver.

    Palmgren was quick to point out that nothing in his contract imposes a top four season finish and he insists that they are required to maintain or improve on last season’s result.

    Amazulu face Manchester United at the Moses Mabhida stadium on Wednesday. This game will form the start of the celebrations of the local club’s 80th anniversary.

    Their first MTN8 cup opening game is against Moroka Swallows in early August and despite the Swedish coach pointing to a top eight finish in the premiership, many expect more of the team that has just signed the Liberian international midfielder, Dulee Johnson.

    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.

    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.
