Cape Town - Chippa United have confirmed the departure of coach Teboho Moloi after a poor run of form saw the Chilli Boys starting to flirt with the relegation places.
Following the team's recent 2-0 defeat to Cape Town City, reports began to circulate that Moloi was on thin ice with the Port Elizabeth-based outfit.
It has since been made clear that the mentor has parted ways with United although it was amicable from all parties involved.
Chippa's official Twitter account said: "Chippa United has parted ways with head coach, Teboho Moloi. It was an amicable parting, and Mr Moloi remains a friend of the club.
"We thank him for his contribution to the Club, and wish him all the best in his future endeavors."
Despite a good start to his tenure after taking over from Dan Malesela last September, a downturn in fortunes on the pitch has seen the 49-year-old's head roll.
Currently, the Chippa Mpengesi-owned side are ninth in the Absa Premiership standings although they are just four points clear of the relegation zone.
