Chippa United Grateful To Mamelodi Sundowns
Chippa United’s Siviwe Mpengesi has expressed his gratitude to Mamelodi Sundowns after a successful deal for a defender.
As reported, Chippa secured the signature of Fares Hachi from Sundowns on a loan deal until the end of the season.
“The signing of Fares Hachi is a strong statement and augers well with our ambitions this season. He is a player that has played in the Champions League, and his experience will help us during the second round of the season. His talent is not in doubt, despite not seeing much game time at Mamelodi Sundowns,” Chippa chairman Siviwe Mpengesi told the club’s official website.
“We welcome him in the blue and white of Chippa United and wish him all the best during his stay with us. He will get all the support for him to fulfil his potential.
“I would like to express my gratitude to Mamelodi Sundowns for the professionalism they displayed throughout the negotiations,” concluded Mpengesi.
Hachi is already in Port Elizabeth and has started training with his new teammates.
“I am excited to be joining the Chilli Boys. I was first fascinated by the nickname, Chilli Boys when I saw the flag, Chilli Boys. I want to thank the club for giving me an opportunity to come here. I already feel at home despite being here for few hours,” Hachi told Chippa’s website.
“Chippa United has evolved from last season, and you could see not only in the games against Mamelodi Sundowns but they have been strong this season.
“They have clear objectives to finish as high as possible on the league table and I am happy to make a contribution towards that.
“There is a lot of talent here; (Kurt) Lentjies, the midfielder Abel (Mabaso), the winger on the left, no 7 (Paseka Mako) to mention but a few. Players with good energy always looking to attack.
“There is lots of quality and I will have to give my all to get a nod from Head Coach,” said the defender.
