- Dan “Dance” Malesela thinks he has what it takes to coach one of the big three teams in South Africa; the Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and the Mamelodi Sundowns
- Malesela would love to coach the Pirates due to sentimental reasons, he started his professional career at the club
- Another reason he would like to coach one of the big three is that he would have enough resources to put together a good team
Former Chippa United and TS Galaxy coach Dan “Dance” Malesela has said that he would relish the chance to coach one of the top teams such as the Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates or the Kaizer Chiefs.
Malesela stunned the soccer world when he performed a Daniel vs Goliath miracle by defeating the Kaizer Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup in 2019.

His personal favourite team to coach would be the Orlando Pirates because that is where he started his professional career.
Malesela has been out of work since April after Chippa United released him from his contractual obligations after the team's poor performance according to Sowetan Live.
One of the reasons he would like to coach one of the big three is that he would have the resources available to build his dream team.
Times Live reported that he has looked back on his coaching career and said that he was grateful that he got to play a part in so many players' lives.
Malesela said that one of his greatest influencers was the late legendary Chiefs, Sundowns and Pirates coach Ted Dumitru.
Like Dumitru, Malesela believes that South African players are among the best in the world and Malesela would never speak badly of a local player.
He believes that South Africa has the talent and it is simply a case of allowing those players to flourish in the correct environment.
Malesela made it clear that he does not like players who show off or pass the ball backwards. He likes players who can go past people.
