Malesela in line for Pirates job?

Orlando Pirates are believed to be holding out on bringing on board a new coach because they are hoping to land Chippa United's Dan Malesela whose contract at the Port Elizabeth-based club comes to an end in June.

A Phakaaathi source has revealed that Malesela is a firm favourite and plans could already be in place for him to familiarise himself with the Buccaneers players.

“I smelt a rat the moment I heard (Justice) Chabalala had been loaned out to Chippa. I then heard that Malesela had come to the office to make presentations and impressed everyone,” said the source.

If what our source alleges is true, then the Chilli Boys were the big winners in this deal, as it was initially thought.
