Thabo Nthethe has seen his stay with Mamelodi Sundowns come to an end, and it was officially announced that he has made a switch to Port Elizabeth side Chippa United on Wednesday.
The 33-year old defender won seven trophies since joining Masandawana five years ago. However, the Bloemfontein-born player had a frustrating 2017/18 season as he struggled for game time in the duration of the league campaign.
Nthethe has now joined the Chilli Boys on a one-year deal, with an option to renew. Supporters Club members have reacted and seemingly have nothing but praises for "Mr Cool".
"Respect for Mr Cool, you have served us well and good luck, my bra, we will always love you." – Pathology

"Mr Cool, Thank you. Indeed, you were a good soldier, good luck on your new journey." – Line's Man...
"My favourite defender ahead of Arendse, Bangaly, Ricardo and Madisha. What a player, but Pitso saw otherwise. I wish you, Mr Cool, all the best. You deserve to play regular football because you are one of the best yet underrated defenders." – indidane
"Good signing, and I can't wait to see his partnership with Okwuosa." – Myaka weliPhefeni
"You have won almost everything with the Mighty Downs, and I would like thank you for your contributions towards our success." – Schakos
"I've always had great respect for Thabo Nthethe. This guy is a true symbol of how a professional player should handle himself, both on and off the field. Much respect, Mr Cool, wish you nothing but all the best in your future endeavours." – Bucsfever16
How do you think Nthethe will contribute in the Chilli Boys' next PSL campaign?
