Kaizer Chiefs: Three more big names to leave

Kaizer Chiefs’ major rebuilding is set to continue for at least another season. Three senior players are expected to leave by 30 June.

Kaizer Chiefs said goodbye to some rather big names in the past two seasons. The list included:

  • Khama Biliat
  • Bernard Parker
  • Erick Mathoho
  • Samir Nurkovic
  • Leonardo Castro.

Reports say a few more senior players will exit the gate this winter.

THREE SENIOR PLAYERS TO LEAVE KAIZER CHIEFS?

According to recent reports, Itumeleng Khune, Keagan Dolly and Njabulo Ngcobo will be heading out of Amakhosi in the coming weeks. The club confirmed that Khune signed his final contract at the beginning of this season, though he is earmarked to take a role inside the club. However, the Kaizer Chiefs legend may opt to continue with his playing career elsewhere. The 36-year-old star is determined to play until he is 40 years old.

“It will depend on my performances on the field. Every player who is registered in the team is willing to work harder, to compete for a place and give his all for the team with every opportunity they get,” Khune said via TimesLIVE.

“There is no difference with me. Whenever I am given an opportunity I will perform so  I can get a new contract. I mentioned at the start of the season that my body can carry me until I am over 40.

The Kaizer Chiefs legend added: “If Buffon could do it until he is 45, El-Hadary could do it until 44, who am I at the age of 36 to entertain the fact that someone has an idea that Itumeleng must retire?

“The club might have released a statement, which is well respected, but at the end of the day I am competing and I have been playing. It will depend on my performances,” Khune concluded.

Additionally, Kaizer Chiefs’ 31-year-old Keagan Dolly, and his 29-year-old teammate Njabulo Ngcobo are reportedly on the way out. Reports say the club won’t be renewing their contracts when they expire on 30 June. Dolly’s deal includes an option to renew, but a renewal is not expected.
