The talks between Kaizer Chiefs and club legend David "DVD" Mathebula have reportedly been called off. Mathebula is still an active footballer at the age of 33 for SuperSport United, but Steve Komphela has reportedly kindly declined his services. How do the supporters feel about this?
It seems the Khosi Nation is split over this controversial issue. There are many who think DVD's experience would stand the Glamour Boys in good stead, and there are also many who think that he is better than the talent available at the club now.
"He's 33, the most disciplined player, he knows the culture of the team, he's the most creative player. Why doesn't Komphela give him a chance? The man is good, he can bring the changes at Chiefs." – Tebogo gm mahlaba
"They must sign him, his experience and ball distribution are much better than Baloyi's." – Neliwalikhosi
"This guy is a good player. We can destroy many teams with defence-splitting pass. Komphela is mad, and we should have signed him. It's a blunder, he must go." – Neliwalikhosi
However, there is a large camp within the Khosi Nation who believe that refusing Mathebula's services was perhaps Komphela's smartest move to date. Especially considering the fact that many asked for Reneilwe Letsholonyane to be released due to his age.
"No, he is old, we should focus on new rising stars. And not forgetting Dan Malesela as our coach." – mabasajay
"For the first time, Komphela does something with sense since joining Amakhosi." – malakza
"If they let Yeye leave because of his age, then what would be the reason for them to sign 33 years old DVD?" – Khaya#26
Do you think Mathebula is better than the talent on offer at Kaizer Chiefs?
