Chippa United unveil 15 new signings

Cape Town - Veteran winger Daine Klate is one of 15 new signings Chippa United have unveiled ahead of the 2018/19 Absa Premiership season.

The 33-year-old is likely to see out the final few years of his career with the Chilli Boys after joining the Port Elizabeth-based side.

The former SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates player is the most decorated player in Premiership history with six league title winners' medals to his credit.

However, he became a free agent at the end of last season after Wits declined to renew his stay.

Other notable new arrivals at the Chilli Boys include Jabulani Shongwe (who spent last season on loan at Golden Arrows from Wits), Ruzaigh Gamildien (formerly of Ajax Cape Town), Thabo Nthethe (Sundowns), Tebogo Makobela from Jomo Cosmos, and Botswana internationals, Thatoyaone Kgamanyane and Kabelo Seakanyeng.

Meanwhile, Dan Malesela is looking forward to a second stint at the club after he replaced Teboho Moloi.

"There are certain bonds that one just can't break; and I'm excited to be back at Chippa United," he said.

"We were very careful with our selection (signings) this season. We didn't only take the talent factor into consideration; we also looked at behaviour; and a real desire from the player to be at the club."
