Justice Chabalala has shared light on his future by revealing where he stands regarding his contract with Orlando Pirates.
As reported in edition 1224 of Soccer Laduma, Pirates are at risk of losing the services of the 29-year-old defender as he is left with a little over a month on his existing deal with the club.
While the Giyani-born player’s representative, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi of Rush Hour Sports Management has confirmed that there has been interest in the defender’s services from other clubs, the intermediary said they are waiting to hear from the Soweto giants about their plans.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Soccer Laduma, Chabalala confirmed that he has not yet heard from Pirates as his one-year loan deal with Bloemfontein Celtic is set to expire at the end of the season.
“Eish, I don’t know what I can say on that one because I really don’t know what’s happening or what is going to happen. But I am an Orlando Pirates player,” he said.
Pressed to share more information on what he expects to happen in the coming weeks as the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season is left with under five rounds of fixtures, the centre-back says the decision on his future lies with the Buccaneers.
“Okay, I hear you, and to answer you. I’m saying that a decision will be taken by Pirates, as I have told you that I’m still their player. Anything that Pirates tell me, whether they will be saying I should come back or stay here (Celtic), I am fine. Having said that, let me mention to you that I respect Orlando Pirates very much because they changed my life... (into) the person that I am today,” added Chabalala.
