Bucs Midfielder’s Chippa Move Explained
Midfielder Discusses His Move From Pirates To Chippa
Mahlatse Makudubela's move from Orlando Pirates to Chippa United has been explained.
Makudubela made the switch from Bucs to the Chilli Boys in a loan deal prior to the start of the season, following his lack of game-time at the Soweto giants.
Following his slow start at Chippa this season due to lack of game-time, the skilful midfielder was handed a run in Teboho Moloi’s team against Golden Arrows in their last game before the FIFA international break.
“It was such a great feeling to finally get some game-time. I had one or two opportunities to score, but I could not, and I know that with confidence I will do more for the team,” Makudubela told Chippa’s official website.
The former Platinum Stars player, who confirmed enjoying working under Moloi at the Eastern Cape club, has explained the switch from Bucs to Chippa.
“In football, you will never stop learning, and I am learning a lot from the current coach. I am excited to be down here in Port Elizabeth to continue with my development, it’s been a long time coming.
“A while ago the Chairman (Siviwe Mpengesi ) and Mr Koutroulis (General Manager) asked me to come join the team, but it did not happen, and when an opportunity was presented to me to come, I did not think twice.
“My decision was made easier because I knew Coach Dan, and also liked the brand of football Chippa United is playing,” added ‘Skudu’.
