Nthethe won six major titles with Sundowns in his four-year stay at the club, before leaving the reigning champions to sign with the Chilli Boys, who are yet to get a taste of glory in topflight football.
The furthest Chippa have gone in any cup competition is the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup and MTN8. They will be hoping for success now that they have a player who knows all about winning silverware.
Nthethe says the Chippa players need to believe that they can win trophies.
“Yes, I believe so [Chippa can win trophies],” the former Bloemfontein Celtic defender and Bafana Bafana international tells KickOff.com.
“With the players that are there I believe we can do it. The players need to believe they can win trophies. As much as we can say Chippa is smaller team than other teams, what matters is what we do on the field. As long as we apply ourselves and work hard, then I think we can get something.”
