'Chippa United Are South Africa's Leicester City'

What an incredible turnaround Chippa United have witnessed this season. The Port Elizabeth side is relatively new to South African football, having only been established in 2010. They now find themselves in the top half of the table... does this ring any bells regarding another team doing something similar?

"We are Leicester City!" United fan Bongi Zulu said

"We are the South African Leicester City. We have risen from the ashes and we are going to take the league next season.

"Have you seen our improvement? There is no limit for this team, the Chilli Boys will go far.

"Our biggest threat now comes from the bigger clubs buying all our stars, but they have already been doing that and we have been surviving."

It has been a pretty miraculous turnaround in affairs. Last season, the Chilli Boys survived relegation by one place. They languished in 14th place and had a win ratio of just 23%.

This time around, though, they have a win ratio of 42% and are in seventh position, only one point behind Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.

Do you think Chippa can become South Africa's Leicester City?
