Bafana Keeper Comments On Chiefs Links

Talk has been rife about the 31-year-old possibly reuniting with his former Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt, who is now at the helm of Amakhosi, since his return to the country from Belgium where he was on the books of OH Leuwen.

Chiefs made an attempt to lure Keet to Naturena for the 2019/20 season – but the keeper had his mind set on a move to Europe at the time.

In a recent interview in edition 1218 of Soccer Laduma, the Cape Town-born keeper commented on the links, revealing that there has been no contact from Chiefs - or any other team, but he is not ruling out any possibilities.

“I haven’t spoken to anyone. The only person I have spoken to was Lee Baxter (Kaizer Chiefs’ goalkeeper coach). I mean, obviously, we speak on a regular basis because of Bafana and things like that,” Keet explained.

“So, we haven’t had much mention about Chiefs interest or (about) any other team. So, we’re kind of just having to wait and see. Our first choice was ideally to go overseas as things were the plan. But you know, things always change in football when you have to be open to everything. So, we’ve said we have to stay open. We will never close the door. And you never know until teams actually approach us. Anything could be available, anything could be news, anything could be a rumour. So, we don’t really know. We haven’t really spoken to anyone yet about joining a team long-term. For now, my focus will be Cape United,” he said.

As reported by the Siya crew, Keet has put pen to paper on a short-term deal with GladAfrica Championship side Cape Umoya United, where he has been training for the last three months, although he will be assessing his options ahead of the new campaign.
