Mugeyi is PSL side Chippa's Head coach

[Posted 29 Jan 2013]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Mugeyi has been an understudy of good coaches for far too long. Now is the time to be in charge!

After having been overlooked by Ajax Cape Town for many years for the position of Head Coach even in an acting capacity, Wilfred Mugeyi's sun is finally shining after the former Ajax assitant coach was appointed Chippa United's head coach this week.

This has been confirmed by Chippa United's spokesman Wanda Mbenguza

“Yes, I can confirm that Farouk Abrahams is no longer with the club. Wilfred Mugeyi has taken over and will be in charge of the team.

“He has significant coaching experience at Ajax Cape Town, but has never been given the chance to be the head coach.

“We are confident that he will rise to the challenge and be a success at Chippa United,”  Mbenguza said on Tuesday.

Chippa parted ways with Abraham Farouk, who was understood to have done his best as coach of struggling but fairly competitive Chippa side. It is not clear if Abraham's dismissal was necessitated by the precarious position that the club finds itself in or it had to do with other factors.

That will not bother Mugeyi now and he will welcome the opportunity to work his coaching wonders at the newly promoted Cape Town side and announce his arrival at the big stage in South Africa's topflight football.

Mugeyi has been an assistant coach at Ajax for several season now, and has been an understudy to the likes of Muhsin Ertugral, Foppe de Han, Craig Rossle, Maarten Stekelenburg and Jan Pruijn recently.

There was certainly an opportunity for Mugeyi to be appointed head coach, like the time when Rossle was appointed while Mugeyi was assistant, and then Pruijn got the nod as caretaker coach ahead of the "Silver fox" after Stekelenburg was shown the door for poor results.

Mugeyi played football at the highest level, in Europe where he played Champions football with Macccabi Haifa of Israel, and in China. This followed stints in Zimbabwe and South Africa where he won the Player of the Year accolades, notably in 1996/97 when he was named Player of the Season, Players' Player of the Year and top goal scorer with 23 goals in the South African NSL.
