Malesela returned to Chippa for a second stint last year but with recent results things haven’t seemed to work out.
Meanwhile, Controversial coach Luc Eymael who was touted to take over from Malesela has been appointed as technical adviser.
Chippa say they have sought clearance from SAFA for the former Free Stars coach to join them.
There were allegations of racism involving Eymael while coaching in Tanzania last year. SAFA issued a statement with an intent to ban him for the alleged comments. However it seems that won’t be happening.
Gwabi will have a tough job on his hands as he will hope to guide Chippa out of danger
Results for Chippa have not been favourable as the team haven’t won a league game in the last six matches only picking up two points.
