Have Chiefs Removed The Cancer Before It Spreads Further? Reader’s Voice

The termination of Hendrick Ekstein's contract came as no shock following his dispute with Kaizer Chiefs making headlines long enough to be taken aback by his dismissal from Naturena.

'Pule' as the fan favourite is affectionately known, reportedly made contract demands that Chiefs deemed too steep.

Named after Amakhosi legend Pule 'Ace' Ntsoelongoe, did the burden of carrying such a legendary name put unnecessary pressure on the player? Did the Amakhosi faithful and the club expect too much of Ekstein? More questions than answers, right? 

Amakhosi club manager Bobby Motaung has claimed that the termination of the contract was met with mutual consent between the two parties. 'Pule' on the other side alleged that the team saw it befitting to abort his contract because he didn't contribute to the team's success.

Blaming an individual for a collective failure won't make other members of the group winners.

Was Chiefs removing the cancer before it could spread to other parts of the body?
