Chippa United manager Dan Malesela says he aims to be the talk of the Premiership and wants to please the fans with their performances.

Malesela is well renowned for his attractive style of play after his stint with National First Division side Cape Town All Stars.

His fluid style of play has drawn many plaudits in local media and, following their impressive 2-0 over Platinum Stars in the MTN8 quarter-final on Saturday evening, the 51-year-old has urged his side to keep to their expansive style of football.

"Unfortunately what we normally play we started very late, but I understand that in cup games there is a lot of tension particularly for our team that has never been beyond the first round," he said after the game.

"It is a good thing though to win and what pleases me the most is when I hear the supporters happy. We are here to entertain them, nothing else. The people must be happy and when they go home they must have something positive to talk about," he added.

"We should not play football like we are scared of the ball, this is something which we must embrace and the expression showed by the boys echoes what I want to see happen for South African football," he concluded.
