Johannesburg – Top-flight rookies Chippa United have reportedly appointed Englishman Mark Harrison as the club's new head coach.

“He (Harrison) was at training this morning,” Chippa's media officer, Lukanyo Mzinzi, told Soccer Laduma, confirming the new coach had already started his job.

Harrison replaces Wilfred Mugeyi, who was the club's fifth coach to be fired this season after being sacked on Thursday.

Chippa are lying bottom of the Absa Premiership log, four points behind Black Leopards, who are second from bottom, with six games left in the league campaign. – Sapa
