CHICKEN Inn coach Mandla Mpofu has quit the club with five games of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League to go.

Mpofu threw in the towel after a spate of poor results left the Chicken Inn sixth on the table and effectively out of the championship race as they are nine points behind leaders Highlanders.

He paid the price for a poor second half of the season where club managed just one win, four draws and five defeats.

The last straw was 1-2 home loss to Hwange on Saturday which followed a back-to-back defeat to Caps United in the league as well as quarterfinals of the lucrative Mbada Diamonds Cup.

“Mpofu has stepped down as our head coach and we have accepted his resignation. He will be replaced by his assistant Mkhuphali Masuku till further notice,” said club chairman Lifa Ncube

“Since results were not coming our way we feel he was gentleman enough to resign as he felt someone needs to come in for the club’s best interest.

“We are happy with his achievements because he led us to our first trophy as a club and we were hoping that he would turn around the results

“He was a good coach and we had an amicable relationship with him and I am sure the players will miss him. But life has to move on.”

Mpofu replaced the late Adam Ndlovu and won the Net One Charity Shield for the club.

Former Motor Action coach Joey Antipas is tipped for the top job at the Bulawayo side.
