Both Kaizer Chiefs stars Itumeleng Khune and Tefu Mashamaite’s contracts talks are yet to be concluded and our fans are beginning to feel unsettled regarding the matter. These are our captains, they are the leaders of the team. The wait of not knowing what will happen next is an agonising process.
There has to be hitches in our transfer and renewal of contracts policies if two of our captains will only tell us at the end of the season if they are staying or going.
Big teams secure the contracts of their top players very early and not in the last six months or even the last few days of their contracts. To be honest, we'll be lucky if one commits.
On the same token, when are we sending a young South Africans overseas for better opportunities that’ll benefit the national team? Mamelodi Sundowns sent Siyanda Xulu to Rostov in Russia, Orlando Pirates sent Andile Jali to KV Oostende in Belgium. What name can we boast in this regard?
Yes, names like Mandla Masango and Eric Mathoho have been linked with moves abroad but the club has not done enough in sending some of their biggest talents abroad who could benefit the national team in the future. No doubt, there are many leaks and holes in the way the team is managed.
Do you agree?
