With Paseka Mako set to appear in the colours of Pirates in the new season, after being signed by the Soweto giants from Chippa, the Chilli Boys have moved quickly in filling the void to be left by the Bafana Bafana player in the left-back position for coach Dan Malesela’s team.

The Siya crew has learnt that Chippa have signed Thapelo Tlabakwe from Jomo Cosmos. The 24-year-old defender, who is a Platinum Stars development product, has been with Ezenkosi in the NFD since last year. 

The Rustenburg-born player has been signed on a three-year deal by Chippa, as confirmed to the Siya crew by sources in the know.

Dans will be fired soon. Already Chippa is selling off all the good players who can play Dans' type of game. Why is he allowing all this in and out of players. So, next season he will have a new team to build. Relegation is coming here.
