Kaizer Chiefs Management Faces Decisions on Contract Renewals
With the contracts of six Kaizer Chiefs players set to expire, the team’s management must make decisions on who to keep and who to let go.
According to iDiskiTimes, four players – Erick Mathoho, Khama Billiat, Phathushedzo Nange, and Cole Alexander – are unlikely to have their contracts renewed and could be leaving the team in June.
Mathoho and Billiat’s Uncertain Future
Mathoho and Billiat have missed most of the season due to injuries.
Although they have returned to training, they have fallen out of favour with Arthur Zwane and are no longer first or second choice.
Mathoho faces competition from Zitha Kwinika, Siyabonga Ngezana, and Edmilson Dove, while Billiat sits behind several other players.
With new players joining the team and Mathoho and Billiat struggling for form, it is uncertain whether we will see them play for Kaizer Chiefs again.
Nange and Alexander Seek Playing Time
For Nange and Alexander, a move may be necessary to secure regular playing time.
Kaizer Chiefs already have a packed midfield with Yusuf Maart, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Samkelo Zwane, and Siyethembe Sithebe preferred in that position.
With their contracts expiring, Nange and Alexander are likely to have already played their last games for the team.
