Many coaches should learn from Chippa United's coach Dan ‘Dance’ Malesela. This holds especially true for under fire Kaizer Chiefs coach, Steve Khompela.
Since taking over the reins in PE, Dan Dance has earned himself a lot of praise from his counterparts for the kind of football that his Chippa United play, while the same cannot be said about the latter, who has had a terrible spell with Chiefs as head coach.
Dan Dance, unlike his counterpart to a large extent, is not the one to sign big name players at the beginning of the season. Many of the new signings are from the second division. He is not the one that is happy with playing and ordinary and defensive game. He requires his team to dominate on the pitch and match their opponents.
It could help Khompela in this regard to understand that it is not what you have, but how you use what you have, that determines how good a coach you are. The continuous excuse about injuries to key players should not be affecting the rhythm of the team, because every player that was signed by Chiefs is a player that deserves to play for Chiefs and should be there by merit.
Do you think Dan Dance could teach a lot of PSL coaches a thing or two?
