    “Even though we have not officially announced it, we have already clinched contracts with two new players in Kurt Lentjies and Puleng Tlolane. There are also other players I will announce soon.”

    Mpengesi has also revealed that he is interested in bringing back former captain James Okwuosa to the club, who joined the Soweto giants during the January transfer window.

    “Chippa supporters have been questioning if my decision to let James Okwuosa join Orlando Pirates was correct,” he added.

    “James only played one game for Pirates. He is still contracted to them, but he has been calling us pleading with us to talk with Pirates to bring him back. Those are some of the things that I have been working on.”
