Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane tips Chippa United as the surprise package in the Premiership in the upcoming season.

Chippa finished in the top eight last season under the mentorship of Dan Malesela, who replaced Roger Sikhakhane as coach in December.

The Chilli Boys played enterprising football under Malesela and Mosimane believes Chippa will continue where they left of last season.

“I think Chippa will surprise‚ they will be a very big surprise this year‚” Mosimane told The Sowetan.

“They have kept the coach‚ they have kept the players. They had a lot of wins last season.

“There is a lot of calmness about them in terms of the coach and the management. I see them doing very well in my opinion. (Coach) Dan (Malesela) believes in total football‚ pure football.

“The only challenge is I don’t know if he does have the personnel. You can have a philosophy but do you have the personnel?”
