 Cleared By Motaung Jr, Sipho Mbule’s Major Misunderstanding
Sporting Director of Kaizer Chief,  Motaung Jnr has responded to supporters’ concerns about the club’s transfer activity and spoken out about the Sipho Mbule drama.

However, due to the sale of Teboho Mokoena, the club’s CEO Stan Matthews put any potential deal on hold, publicly doubting the professionalism of the South Africa international.

Chiefs fans were outraged, with questions asked about the club’s ambition and why they weren’t willing to break the bank for Mbule, which Motaung Jnr. has now addressed.

“We’re in the football industry, so whether you’re at Barcelona, Chelsea, or Real Madrid, do you really think Real or other teams will always pay whatever the price is?” “This is not the case,” Motaung Jnr. stated on Twitter during the Khosi Space.

“I understand that it’s part of what we have to do, but there’s a big misperception here: the club has bought players, the team has to pay salaries, and you have to arrange for all of these things to happen.” The club has been looking for new players.

“If our fans want Sipho Mbule, I want Sipho Mbule, we all want Sipho Mbule, but if Stan Matthews says Sipho Mbule isn’t going anywhere, that’s not me saying the club is avoiding a number or we’re not willing to pay.”



Ashley Du Preez, Stellenbosch  Forward is another player who has been highly linked with the club, according to the Sporting Director, who talked in broad terms rather than referring to the Mbule case specifically.

“It’s all about transactions, and we need to recognize that our competitors, people don’t always want to do business with you; it’s just the industry you’re in.” So, just to be clear, this is a major misunderstanding.

“You have to judge it based on the situation; I don’t believe there are any teams that pay and sign players without considering the return on investment; you’re going to put money out and say, ‘Listen, this is what we’re going to get out of that.'”

“Transfers are always a bit of a minefield for folks because some people believe that the team doesn’t spend money.” However, when you consider the amount of money invested, it is significant. Salaries are taken into account – I understand – but we strive to be as competitive as possible in the transfer market.”
