Mammila’s resignation was confirmed on Monday by the club’s chairman Khurishi Mphahlele, who stopped short of confirming that his former employee will link up with Chippa next week.
“He got an offer somewhere, he got a much-improved offer somewhere,” said Mphahlele.
“He must work for his future. I’ve got his letter and I am still going to speak to him, but I wish him luck.”
Another source has confirmed that Mammila will replace Peter Koutroulis at the Port Elizabeth outfit, who have been operating without a CEO since early December.
Mphahlele has hinted that Baroka will take Mammila’s loss in their stride and move quickly to replace the man who has been at the helm since the club moved into the National First Division in 2013.
Mammila played a key role in recruitment for Bakgaga overseeing both player and coach requirements and has promised to help fix the Chilli Boy’s problems.
Chippa are 15th in the current standings, two points and as many places behind Baroka.
