Former Cape Town City man Vincent Kobola has accepted a new challenge at Chippa United as the assistant coach to Eric Tinkler.
Kobola hung up his boots last season while playing with the Citizens.
The 33-year-old’s business manager, Jazzman Mahlakgane confirmed that Kobola is moving into coaching.
“I will no longer participate in his business matters, as I don’t represent coaches,” Mahlakgane was quoted as saying by SunSport.
“I have been with him for eight years and it is a matter of principle that I allow him to move on. But I will continue being his mentor and advisor, just not on business matters.”
“I agree that his man management is excellent. Chippa has landed a guy who will manage their players to perfection.”
“This will allow Tinkler to focus on coaching while he handles the players. He actually made Cape Town City a success from its launch. He’s an absolute contributor when you want to get your ducks in a row.”
