Chippa were hoping to have Thabo Matlaba and Bernard Morrison joining them from Pirates for the new season, with the club having already announced signing the two players last week. 

However, it turned out that only Thamsanqa Sangweni is joining the Chilli Boys after the failed moves for Matlaba and Morrison.

“*ABSA Premiership Loading* Catch the Chilli Boys as they take on the Buccaneers in our first home fixture of the season (Edited),” tweeted Chippa.



Chippa have communicated the contract details for Sangweni, confirming that the central midfielder has been signed on a two-year deal. Furthermore, the club has confirmed the return of midfielder Buyani Sali after he initially parted ways with them at the end of last season.

Meanwhile, Chippa’s first match of the season will be on 05 August against Bloemfontein Celtic at the Dr Molemela Stadium, while Bucs will be at home at the Orlando Stadium against Highlands Park on 04 August for their first match.

Berdien was previously with Free State Stars.

It will be madness for Bucs to sell Matlaba and Malolactic.Coaches sometimes contribute towards players destruction. Matlaba was good at right back but coaches shifted him to central m/field. Now they bought a full squad. For what?
