Chiefs’ Jali Offer ‘Very Similar’, But He Chose Downs

Chiefs’ Jali Offer ‘Very Similar’, But He Chose Downs

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 10, 2018 06:30 PM
Andile Jali’s decision to choose Mamelodi Sundowns over Kaizer Chiefs was not about the money, that’s according to his agent, Mike Makaab.
The 28-year-old was confirmed by Masandawana earlier this week, bringing to an end months of speculation, with the former Orlando Pirates star landing a long-term five-year deal with the reigning Absa Premiership champions.
Given Sundowns’ reputation as a free-spending club, there have been suggestions that Masandawana handed the Bafana Bafana international a more lucrative deal, though that has been denied.
While discussing the move with one of his followers, Makaab alluded to the fact that it was not about money, saying ‘not true, both offers were financially very similar’, and he also went on to say that ‘you can quote me on that’.
Jali will now be focused on getting himself in gear ahead of the 2018/19 season, and returning to match fitness having not played a competitive game now in over three months.

I would like to thank Dr. Khoza for not wasting money on signing Jali. We have made Jali and we give him our blessing. We are an institute that build brand and history. Jali is the only player out a lot of PSL players who has made history by scooping treble in consecutive years. That history he will never repeat. Let the best team be successful. I am still saying that at Pirates we do not look at money. We look at the heart and commitment of the player to make name and legacy for themselves. Watch these brilliant players make history again.

I think he made the right decision by choosing Sundowns, if a player sign for a team he would be played by a couch unfortunately Chiefs don't have one. Also my advice to Chiefs dey must Sign de Coach first den he can get his players of his choice n can play under him.

I think the thought of having the fat one being the one to bring in personnel over the next five years put him off. We all know the kind of signings he comes up with

Every player want to play for honours at the end of the season and for that to happen you have to play for Sundowns here at home. Players are no longer interested to play for Chiefs please don't get me wrong but is what we see nowadays.

These people are incompetent and will go on to validate their stupidity by not offering a formal apology to their loyal bloggers
