Ekstein Blasted: That’s Not Showing Humanity

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Hendrick ‘Pule’ Ekstein has been blasted by his former agent Palesa Mkhize for alleged disloyalty. 

Following his much-publicised departure from Chiefs in April last year, Ekstein went on to sign a deal in Azerbaijan with Sabah FC in July while he was still under Mkhize’s management.

The Bekkersdal-born player’s stay with the club was short-lived, after he parted ways with them in December.

In January this year, when the 29-year-old joined his current Azerbaijani club Sabail FC, it emerged that he was no longer working with Mkhize as his business manager.

“Ekstein? I made it clear that I will not entertain anything to do with him again. I’m done with him. I wish him all the best wherever he is. I don’t hold grudges. It’s just that he took me for granted and that’s all,” Mkhize told the Siya crew.

“I mean, the way things were done, you know I brokered his deal to Europe and all of a sudden he dumped me for another agent there. That’s not showing humanity. You can’t work with someone like that and it was the second time he did something that to me,” he added.

“Since he was at Chiefs I had been involved with Ekstein. From day one that he went to Chiefs, I was involved with him. After he signed the contract with the club he dumped me for another agent, and that was Micky Paiva. When he came back to me he started performing, I don’t know if our pep talks contributed to that, because I always speak to my players and I always watch their games to encourage them on the areas they need to improve on. During the last six months of his (Chiefs) contract he was performing well. After he got a deal overseas I could sense some bad vibes going on when I spoke to him. I just knew that history was repeating itself,” said the representative.
