Former Sundowns star to Chippa United?

Leaving Mamelodi Sundonwns as a teenager does not mean much. Chippa United are expected to sign an exciting Sundowns youth reject.


Cape Town’s ABC Motsepe side FN Rangers nearly won promotion to the Motsepe Foundation Championship this month. One of the star players at the promotional play-offs was the former Sundowns attacker Giovanni Philander. According to iDiski Times’ Sinethemba Makonco, the Chilli Boys are set to sign the 21-year-old attacking midfielder.

“Chippa United are poised to sign talented FN Rangers winger Giovanni Philander. iDiski Times understands that Chippa is edging closer to signing the 24-year-old. The Eastern Cape-based side is in competition with SuperSport United for his signature. But Chilli Boyz are the favourites to land the dribbling wizard,” the report said.

“He is expected to be in Gqeberha next week to start pre-season with the Chilli Boyz,” the report added.


Mamelodi Sundowns are continuing the trend they started two years ago. The club is going to Europe for preseason.

As reported across local media last week, Kabo Yellow were said to be planning a trip to Europe ahead of the new season. The African Football League champions follow this trip after visiting the Netherlands last season. The new plans were confirmed by the chairman Thlopie Motsepe on Friday.

“As we prepare for the upcoming season, plans are underway for a return to Europe for our pre-season,” Motsepe revealed to the club’s media. “This time, after considering different countries and continents, the team has opted for Austria where they will face some top European sides. 

“We trust that preparations will be in-depth and vigorous as they were in the Netherlands last year. The camp in Austria will also assist with the preparations for the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup,” the Sundowns boss added.


So much happens during pre-season in footballers’ lives. Mamelodi Sundowns‘ Lucas Ribeiro has been touching lives in Santa HelenaBrazil.

Kabo Yellow‘s 25-year-old Brazilian forward Ribeiro has been enjoying the holidays after lighting up the South Africa with 19 goals and nine assists in his debut season. With a few weeks left of the break, the Sundowns star has taken time and money to support the poor.
