Kaizer Chiefs have said that will release their players called up to Gordon Igesund's CHAN squad only after their game against Mamelodi Sundowns on January the 23rd.
The club confirmed this on their official Twitter account on New Years Day.
Kaizer Chiefs tweeted, "CHAN: Kaizer Chiefs will release the called up players after the Sundowns on 23rd of January as our commitment to the National Team.
"CHAN: We have written a letter to SAFA indicating that we will release the called up players after the Sundowns game on the 23rd of January."
Soccer-Laduma reported that Chiefs had sent this letter earlier this week.
This will mean that if Gordon Igesund accepts this compromise, none of the Kaizer Chiefs players will be available for Bafana Bafana's Group Stage matches, and would only be available at the knockout stages if Bafana get through.
