Mokeke reunites with Tinkler at Chippa

Utility player Thato Mokeke has reunited, once more, with his former coach Eric Tinkler at Chippa United.

The two previously worked together at Cape Town City and most recently, SuperSport United.

Mokeke, 28, has been in the wilderness since leaving United in the offseason and looks set to find a new home in Port Elizabeth.

“Yes I can confirm that Thato is with the team,’ club CEO Lukhanyo Mzinzi said.

“He has been with the team for over a week now and he is obviously known by the coach as they have worked together before.

The highly versatile Kimberly-born man could add the much needed stability at the Chilli Boys as he can deputise across a number of positions including centre-back, left-back, central-midfield and also out on the left wing.

Other than City and Matsatsantsa, he has also turned out for Ajax Cape Town and has four Bafana Bafana caps to his name.
