Tau And Chiefs Part Ways

Kaizer Chiefs have parted ways with Jimmy Tau, the club's official website has revealed.

The player’s future has been in doubt for some time after he struggled with injuries in the past season, and his contract with the club was due to expire at the end of the month.

The player’s agent, Jazzman Mahlakgane, confirmed to Soccer-Laduma that the two parties have agreed to go their separate ways in a meeting held earlier today (Thursday).

“We just had a meeting with the club about it. It’s true that the player is leaving. We were told that the coach (Stuart Baxter) needs a youngster for the right-back position. They have Pa (Siboniso Gaxa) and the boy from Bloemfontein Celtic (Kgotso Moleko) already in that position. Jimmy is still going to continue playing. But we are just waiting to see what will happen in the next few days,” said Mahlakgane.
