Retired Jambo Still On Chiefs’ Payroll

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender, Jimmy Jambo, is still on the club’s payroll at present, despite retiring from football nearly a year ago, in July 2014.

Jambo, who suffered a horrendous knee injury while playing for the Amakhosi back in 2013, decided to hang up his boots last year after it became apparent that he would not be able to get back to his best on the football field.

However, as reported in today’s Soccer Laduma, it seems that Chiefs have decided to stick by the defender, whose contract is only set to expire in June this year, by keeping him on the payroll until his deal expires.

The Zimbabwean has been spotted at Naturena several times since his retirement last year, and a source said, “He is seen as a Chiefs player, with the team still doing everything for him. They still have a running contract with him, although he did hang his boots up. They have been loyal to him, with some saying that the club is giving back to the player after the commitment and loyalty that was shown by him.

“There were teams in Zimbabwe which wanted to sign him, but he turned them down and Chiefs saw that as being honest to the club, so they decided to continue paying his salary. He is still around in Jo’burg because he still gets paid and can support his family.”
