Former Chippa United coach, Teboho Moloi is grateful for the opportunity that the Port Elizabeth-based team gave him.

Chippa United and Moloi parted ways after the cub lost 2-0 to Cape Town City in an Absa Premiership match in Cape Town.

This was their second successive loss.

Chippa have not won their last seven matches.

According to Moloi, there were a lot of expectations from team after their one-nil win over Kaizer Chiefs in December.

“You see when you achieve things early as they did, like beating Kaizer Chiefs in the first round. We ran all the way to the top and became number two. People started thinking the team was ready to command that high position, but I knew the type of players we have and how far can we go.”
