The left-back spent the pre-season with Chiefs and looked like he was in the team’s plans under coach Steve Komphela and his technical team.

According to a source close to Nyamende, the 23-year-old signed a contract with Chiefs during the transfer window, but it was later cancelled by the Soweto giants.     

“The story here is that Aviwe Nyamende signed a contract with Kaizer Chiefs, but the contract was cancelled two days after the player signed it. He signed a two-year contract with an option for another two years. The player signed the contract on a Thursday and two days later, on a Saturday, they (Chiefs) called him to the office and told him that they were cancelling his contract. 

“The player had been with Chiefs for two months prior to him signing with the club. He was told that the club sat as the board of directors and decided that they were covered in the left back position. They said he is 23 years old and, because of that, his age puts him at a disadvantage for a chance to stay with the club. 

“It wasn’t understood why that (age) wasn’t considered before the player was signed. They kept him for so long when he could have been somewhere else with another club. Steve (Komphela) liked him and he even told Bobby (Motaung) that he liked the player,” said the source.
