Contract Running Out! Chiefs Player To Get Chance?

A Kaizer Chiefs player has entered the final year of his contract and will need to force his way into the team in an effort to try get a renewal once the season comes to an end. 

Nigerian goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi joined Amakhosi in January 2019 from Chippa United on an initial one-year deal, but extend the deal in January 2020 for a further two-and-a-half years, which will expire in June 2022. 

Amakhosi coach Stuart Baxter has recently spoken about the future in the decision to have Bruce Bvuma and Brandon Petersen in goal. At 35, Akpeyi seems to be the fourth choice Amakhosi goalkeeper and this may not be ideal for him in the final year of his contract.

"When you are in the last year of your contract, you are just praying to get a chance to play. When you get a chance, you have to grab it and make sure that you use it, so that you can get negotiations for a new deal," former Amakhosi goalkeeper Aubrey Mathibe tells the Siya crew. 

"If you don't play, you will end up leaving. If you play, you need to use that chance so that the team can give you a new contract. January is around the corner and that's the time most of the negotiations start. Maybe he will get a chance and grab and play until he gets a new contract. But he if does not play, it's going to be difficult to sign with Chiefs."
