Matthews Addresses Mbule's Chiefs Links

SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews has addressed recent talk about midfielder Sipho Mbule possibly joining Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs.

Mbule was one of the hot topics throughout the month of the January transfer window, with both Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns said to be interested in his services. SuperSport, though, have been clear that Mbule would not be sold during the January transfer window.

The 23-year-old still has two more years to go on his contract with SuperSport.

"I've heard a lot of talk about Chiefs, but we were not formally approached by Chiefs. I can only examine what's put in front of me and what's put in writing on the table formally to me, and then I can take it forward and put it to my board. But we have not been in that situation with Kaizer Chiefs with any player," Matthews told the Siya crew. 

"We've had talks around Sipho, but we decided as a club that this was not the time we were prepared to let him go. So, there's no move for him. I think at times it's destabilizing for the players when clubs come along and offer them telephone numbers that's much bigger than the current contracts they are on. They are looking across and think that the grass is greener on the other side and they start to resent their current club in a way like 'how can you not let me go?' 

"It's not an admirable situation. It's something we've seen around the world. The minute they are offered something better somewhere else, they fall out of love with their current team and they want out and they want to force a move. Sipho has another two years to run on his contract and unfortunately we are not a club where you can just talk your way out of a contract. You need to earn your move. Teboho (Mokoena) has done that and Sipho has not."
