Chippa United have appointed Lehlohonolo Seema as the club’s new head coach on a three-year deal.
The Chilli Boys confirmed the news on Monday morning after Seema left his post at Bloemfontein Celtic. Seema had been with Siwelele since 2013, having also previously played for the club from 1998-2006.
“Chippa United FC hereby confirms that the team has with immediate effect appointed Lehlohonolo Simon Seema as its head coach on a three-year contract,” read a club statement.
“Coach Seema joins the Chilli Boys from Bloemfontein Celtic, where he put in notable performances and his abilities as a coach at the highest level were evident.
“Chairman of the club, Mr. Siviwe Mpengesi, expressed his support for Coach Seema and expressed his confidence in a winning combination between the coach and the ambitions of Chippa United FC during his tenure.”
Seema replaces Rhulani Mokwena as head coach of the Port Elizabeth-based club following the expiry of his loan deal from Orlando Pirates.
Chippa currently occupy 12th place on the log standings, a mere three points above the relegation zone ahead of the Premier Soccer League’s restart.
