Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has refused to be dragged through the mud by AmaZulu regarding Siyethemba Sithebe.
A few weeks ago, AmaZulu boss Sandile Zungu said it wouldn’t have been possible for them to release Sithebe early from his contract as Chiefs offered them ‘rejects’.
Furthermore, Zungu accused Chiefs of poaching Sithebe, claiming that the midfielder signed his pre-contract with Amakhosi before the opening of the January transfer window.
That claim was vehemently denied by Sithebe’s agent and uncle Musawakhe Sihlangu Sithebe who said they only entered into negotiations with Chiefs at the start of 2022.
And that was after AmaZulu failed to match or come close to Sithebe’s demands – the Bafana Bafana international wanted a better package to secure his future.
AmaZulu went further and threatened to report Chiefs to FIFA in an attempt to get them banned from signing players from other clubs.
Now, Motaung was asked to comment on everything that has been said about the Chiefs deal with Sithebe.
But the Amakhosi boss said while he has read and heard everything AmaZulu said in the media, this is not the appropriate time to entertain them.
Motaung said Chiefs will respond to everything, including the signing of players when the time is right, and thus, refusing to be involved in a war-of-words with AmaZulu and Zungu.
CHIEFS BOSS BOBBY MOTAUNG WON’T ENTERTAIN ZUNGU’S COMMENTS… FOR NOW!
“We have been reading and hearing things. I will respond to those comments at an appropriate time,” Motaung told Sunday World.
“We will deal with everything, including the signing of players, at the right time. Right now, I am not going to say much,” concluded Motaung.
