Mammila targets four player sales in end-of-season shakeup

Chippa United head coach Morgan Mammila is targeting four player sales at the end of the season, aiming to generate revenue and build a stronger squad for next season.

In an interview with FARPost, Mammila expressed his desire to cash in on four players he considers “sellable” and “quality.” He sees this as a key step in his plan to bolster the DStv Premiership side and achieve greater success.

“I’m already making plans for next season for this team,” Mammila revealed. “I’ll be the happiest man if I can sell four players because there are four quality players that I think we can do business with. They’re sellable those.”

While Mammila did not disclose the identities of all four players he has earmarked for sale, Tanzanian midfielder Baraka Majogoro and Nigerian goalkeeper Stanley Nwabili are among those. The two international stars could play at the Africa Cup of Nations next month. 

Nwabili’s national team coach, Jose Peseiro, spent a few days in Port Elizabeth recently, where he was monitoring him. The Portuguese mentor also watched the Chilli Boys beat Golden Arrows 2-0 at the Nelson Mandela Bay. Nwabili would have impressed Peseiro after keeping his seventh clean sheet of the season.


Mammila’s comments highlight his strategic approach to team management. The administrator-turned-coach has guided the Eastern Cape outfit to four wins, six draws and four losses. They are currently ninth on the table.

Selling the best talents to reinvest in the squad is common in South African football. Teams like TS Galaxy and Stellenbosch FC, finalists in the Carling Knockout Cup, have mastered it over the years. It allows clubs to fund new signings and enhance their competitiveness.

Whether Mammila will successfully sell his desired players and utilise the funds to create a stronger team remains to be seen. However, his proactive approach and willingness to face tough decisions are positive signs for the future of Chippa United.
