Cape Town - Chippa United have handed coach Clinton Larsen a new two year contract after he helped guide the Chilli Boys to safety in 2018/19.

Larsen was on a short team deal with Chippa but always said he would consider a new contract should the club avoid relegation to the National First Division.

As such, with United finishing safely in 12th spot in the previous campaign, the 48-year-old will now continue his career in Port Elizabeth.

Speaking to KickOff, club boss Chippa Mpengesi reveals the team have big ambitions under Larsen in 2019/20.

He told the publication: "His mandate is to ensure that the boys finish among the top eight in the upcoming season.

"Clinton is a valued member of the Chippa United family and he has a good team to manage."

Meanwhile, veteran winger Daine Klate is reportedly being considered as an assistant coach to the former Orlando Pirates player.
