Ramahlwe ‘Rama’ Mphahlele has seen a big drop in his market value ever since the start of the 2019/20 campaign, losing out on around ±R6m.
After returning from his loan with the University of Pretoria back in January 2015, Mphahlele enjoyed a successful stint at Sundowns, winning two league titles and even captaining the Brazilians during his final season at the club.
Mphahlele’s good fortunes carried over when he joined Chiefs back in July 2016 and despite not winning any trophies with the team, he enjoyed regular game-time at the club; cementing his spot in the starting line-up.
According to the figures on transfermarkt.com, in his first season with Chiefs, the right-back’s market value rose from €600 (±R11.58m) thousand, to €800 thousand (±R15.44m) and peaked at the end of last season – June 2019 – where he was valued at €850 thousand (±R16.41).
However, this season, Mphahlele has dropped massively out of favour, making just two appearances in all competitions for Chiefs, as his future at the club continues to hang in the balance.
Consequently, the player has seen a big drop in his market value and is now worth €525 thousand (±R10.13m).
The 30-year-old is currently being linked with an exit at Amakhosi, however, his future at the club could largely depend on whether or not Ernst Middendorp leaves Naturena at the end of the season.
There is a 50% chance that the German tactician will leave Chiefs at the end of the season and should a new head coach come in, Mphahlele could get the chance to reignite his form.
