It seems like the Brian Baloyi saga all over again… A familiar, homegrown dreadlocked hero of the Khosi Nation flirting with the idea of moving across to Chloorkop. At the time of his departure, it was unimaginable to see Brian Baloyi with anything other than a Kaizer Chiefs badge over his heart. Now, Reneilwe Letsholonyane could be making a similar move once his contract expires… Is this the best thing for his career?
Supporters Club caught up with Kaizer Chiefs supporter Saddam Maake, who was around when Baloyi left, to find out what he thought was best for "Yeye".
"I spoke to him the other day. It worries me. I was worried when Baloyi left, but luckily he came back to coach," he said.
"My advice to Yeye is the following: he has played for Kaizer Chiefs for eight years, if he stayed for another two he would be one of the greats.
"If he goes to Sundowns, how long will they use him there? Months?
"I cannot leave Kaizer Chiefs. Saddam is Saddam through Chiefs; it's the same with Yeye.
"For the sake of history, it is reckless to leave. There is space for all our greats here; look at where Doctor (Khumalo) is.
"You can't leave your wife after being with her for so long and you already have three kids. It's like leaving her for a different woman with three kids that aren't even yours and don't even listen to you.
"That's how I feel about Yeye leaving. He must stay, he can be one of the legends, he can stay for life."
Is Yeye legendary enough to be mentioned alongside the likes of Khumalo, Pule, Madida, etc.? Is it more offensive to leave your club for a rival (i.e. from Chiefs to Sundowns), or does that not matter?
