It had been reported in recent times that Chiefs had targeted Patrice Carteron as a possible candidate to replace Steve Komphela, who has since parted ways with the club. It was subsequently reported that Carteron was at the top of the club’s wishlist and that the club had made contact with his camp, while a host of top coaches were linked to the job.

Siya sources have since indicated that Carteron’s personal demands have led the Soweto giants to assess their other options. As revealed in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1 073, Carteron is looking to cash in on whopping R1 million a month, all-in-all, which accumulates to R12 million.

According to the sources, when Chiefs were made aware of the money it would take to secure the current Phoenix Rising coach’s signature, they lost interest.
