Mpengesi happy with my work: Clinton Larsen

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Chippa United Coach Clinton Larsen says his boss Chippa Mpengesi is happy with his performance so far.

Chippa are lying precariously on the log on the 14th spot with 24 points from 27 matches.

They have won five matches, drawn nine and lost 13 matches.

Larsen is confident Mpengesi will not fire him.

Larsen became the fourth coach for Chippa this season after he replaced Joel Masutha.

Masutha came in for Eric Tinkler after Dan Malesela was fired early in the season.

Larsen says he is not under pressure despite the precarious position on the log.

Chippa narrowly lost 3-2 to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Absa Premiership match on Tuesday. Before then, they were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup 4-2 by Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

Larsen says they at least deserved a point against Sundowns. Larsen was not entirely happy with the officiating against the current league champions Sundowns. He felt that they should have been awarded at least two penalties.

Chippa have conceded 32 goals this season, which is one of the worst defences in the league. They have also scored 23 goals, which is one of the lowest. They will take on Cape Town City in a must win match on Friday. Larsen is concerned about a shaky defence.
