Dan “Dance” Malesela and Chippa United have once again reunited. Malesela was embarrassingly sacked three games into the 2018-19 season in his second stint as Chippa United manager.
Chippa’s coach who started the season‚ Lehlohonolo Seema‚ was placed on suspension on Tuesday‚ having managed just one win out of eight games in the DStv Premiership.
The Chilli Boys were without a coach after they were forced to withdraw the appointment of Luc Eymael.
Safa and Eastern Cape government objected to Eymael’s appointment due to racist statements attributed to the Belgian.
Malesela was clubless after he was recently fired by newcomers TS Galaxy.

Malesela’s first encounter will be against third-placed SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium next year January.
