Chippa United Football Club are thrilled to announce the return of Dan Malesela in the senior Head Coach position.

Malesela will be in charge of the team until the end of the season with Club aspiration on a
top half finish in this 2020/21 DSTV Premiership season.

Affectionately referred to as “Dan Dance", he is a popular figure in the Chilli Boys set up with
our supporters, having led the team to a best ever league finish (sixth in the 2015/16
season) and to a memorable 2017 Nedbank Cup semi-final place.

Malesela comes in highly regarded for his man management skills and carries a proven
track record with working with young football talent.

Club Chairman, Mr. Siviwe Mpengesi, commented: “We are very excited to have ‘Dan
Dance' back in Club structures. He has always been well liked with all of our supporters
branches, and we did not hesitate to link him back with the Chilli Boys when that opportunity
presented itself.

“We have a person that is familiar with the position that we find ourselves in, our brand, the
team culture as well as our Club ambitions. I wish him well in this journey and towards
helping the team towards our desired achievements for this season.”
Malesela's first match in charge will be against SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium
when the league campaign resumes in the New Year on 6 January 2021. The Club will
announce a press conference involving the Coach in due course.
