Chiefs Still Have Defender Contract Option

Kaizer Chiefs Have An Option On Tsepo Masilela

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 18, 2018 12:24 PM
 
Tsepo Masilela made his first appearance since August over the weekend, and did so as a central defender, while his future at Kaizer Chiefs remains up in the air.
 
 
The 32-year-old full back is currently in his sixth season with the Amakhosi since returning to South Africa from Europe back in 2012 and has made over 140 appearances for the club as he helped them to two Absa Premiership titles as well as the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup trophies.  
 
Now, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season, Chiefs have a decision to make with regards to the one-year option that they still have on his contract at Naturena.
 
Masilela has played just three games in the league this season as he battled with injury, although his experience could be seen as key going into the new campaign after yet another trophyless year.  
 
 
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, there has still been no word on the defender’s future at the club, but often the team with the option has until May 31st to exercise it, meaning that there can be no discussions with other interested parties until that deadline has passed. If that is the case here, Chiefs could look to the next few games before making a decision.
 
Mike Makaab, the player’s representative, told the Siya crew last month, “At this point, nothing has changed. I’ll be meeting with Chiefs this month, and the signs are positive with his rehab. I’ll sit down with them and see what the way forward is with regards to his future.”
 
Do you think Chiefs should exercise their option on Masilela?

masilela is a good left back. zulu is a winger ,i do not know why zulu is playing as a left back. that is another reason why Khompela should leave kaizer chiefs. he is very good in players swapping . i personally hope that Motaung can re-new his contract for three years,until we find a suitable left back.

changing of defenders all the time has cost us(chiefs) the league n if they are not injured they are loaned, so with that kind of mentality how is the first team going to compete for leagues titles n other trophies? we are tired of aiming for the top 8!

I still prefer Masilela over zulu, Zulu is not a natural left back and cant play quality crosses into box.

We let Morgan Gould go, look at him now. He is not injured, plays many matches and is doing well. Chiefs management must carefully assess what is going on in this team. Why players are injured all the time?

Steve kept the left backs on the bench and played a winger there. I wonder why he did that? Khumalo has a strong tackle and has an engine to do the work, while Masilela was injured.

Please keep this guy, Zulu is not as good as he is on the left back. Zulu is faulty at times and cant bring in quality crosses.

Ai...It's clear that 0-0 scoreline is a huge achievement at Chiefs.
