Former Orlando Pirates winger Maselealo Seanego is determined to revive his career at Chippa United.
The Kaizer Chiefs development product has just penned a six-month deal with Chippa following stints with Pirates, Golden Arrows and most recently National First Division outfit Royal Eagles.
Seanego was one of six players released by Bucs before the start of the season.
"It’s awesome to be here, and I am absolutely delighted. I see this as an opportunity to revive my career,” Seanego told his club's website.
“I trained with Chippa before the start of last season, but the move did not materialise.
“I would like to thank the chairman Mr Mpengesi for affording me the opportunity to be a Chilli Boy. I am grateful to coach Teboho and his technical team, and of course the players for the manner in which they welcomed me to Port Elizabeth.”
The 23-year-old, who also plays at left-back, is grateful for his time with the Buccaneers.
“I am grateful to Pirates, they gave me my first contract and when I returned to the club in July last year we mutually agreed to part ways.
“I am now working hard to regain my confidence, and this has been made easy here at Chippa as I am familiar with most the guys. [Zitha] Macheke at Chiefs 'Devo' [Development]. I was with Menzi [Masuku] and some other guys at Pirates. I knew Paseka Mako as we played against each at school level.”
