Chiefs Sussing Out Stellies Defender?

Kaizer Chiefs are believed to be keen on a defender who has been doing well this season for Stellenbosch FC. 

For his performances and progress so far in the campaign, Sibusiso Mthethwa is believed to be monitored by a few clubs, including Chiefs who are thought to be keen on reinforcing their defence should they succeed in their appeal against the FIFA transfer ban.

Mthethwa produced a top-class performance as he kept Chiefs’ top goalscorer Samir Nurkovic at bay this past weekend, and it has since emerged that Amakhosi are revisiting their interest in the 29-year-old centre-back, as reported in edition 1188 of Soccer Laduma.

“Chiefs have renewed their interest in Sibusiso Mthethwa. The club has always been interested in the player and, after the weekend’s match, interest has been revived as Mthethwa was outstanding for Stellenbosch after he marked Nurkovic out of the game. After the game, one of the club’s officials approached the player and asked him about his contract situation. There have been enquiries,” said the source.

Mthethwa has made 21 league starts for the Mother City outfit – which is two appearances behind Nyiko Mobbie and four less than Marc Van Heerden, who has made more starts in the league for Steve Barker’s side at 25.  

Following Nkanyiso Zungu’s move to Orlando Pirates in January, Mthethwa could be another star to switch to Gauteng from the Mother City club should Chiefs decide to make a formal offer for his services if they succeed with the appeal against the FIFA transfer ban.
