Chippa United coach Dan Malesela is set to become the first casualty of the new season.

It’s been widely reported in several online publications that former SuperSport United coach, Eric Tinkler is on his way to Port Elizabeth to replace him and will be introduced to the players this week.

United have not won a single of their first three matches they lost twice and drew the other.

Attempts to get a comment from club chair Chippa Mpengesi and Chief Operations Officer Lukhanyo Mzinzi were fruitless.

Meanwhile long serving team manager, Wanda Mbenguzana announced his resignation from the club on Facebook.

SABC News has reliably learnt that changes are looming in playing personnel as it is alleged that some of the senior players do not see eye to eye with certain members of the management.
