Former Cape Town City attacker Ayanda Patosi has responded to rumours of him possibly joining either Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs with a wild accusation.
For years now, Patosi has been linked with both the Soweto giants but he’s yet to realise that dream as he continues to ply his trade abroad.
The 29-year-old is currently on the books of
Foolad Khuzestan; an Iranian outfit campaigning in the Persian Gulf Pro.
Patosi has directly been involved in 10 goals – six goals and four assists – in 26 competitive matches for Khuzestan so far this season.
In an interview with Sibonelo FM as per iDiski Times, Patosi said while he has neither been contacted by Pirates nor Chiefs, somebody badmouthed him to the two clubs.
Patosi said he knows who the person badmouthed him to both Pirates and Chiefs is, but he didn’t want to reveal their name or identity.

AYANDA PATOSI’S RESPONS TO ORLANDO PIRATES AND KAIZER CHIEFS REPORTS
“There are offers, which I can’t tell you now. But the team I’m with is happy with me and I’m also happy,” confirmed Patosi.
“There were rumours of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates being interested in me, but I never followed up. After that everything went quiet. But I think they went quiet because there are people that were badmouthing me and I don’t want to go deep into it. But I know someone talked bad about me.”
“There was no official offer from Chiefs or Pirates. All I know is someone badmouthed me and I know who’s that person,” continued Patosi.
Furthermore, Patosi said he still harbours the ambition to play for either Pirates or Chiefs as this has been his dream since the young age.
He added that he still hasn’t decided if he wants to stay at Khuzestan, saying he is open to a move back to the PSL although any team that wants him should be prepared to pay him well.
“There are two teams I grew up wanting to play for: Pirates and Chiefs, So, I would love to play for one of them. Even now I haven’t decided if I will stay here or not. I’m open to a move. I’m open to any PSL team, only if they beat the offer that I’m being offered [here].”
