Grant Kekana Considers Move to Kaizer Chiefs Amid Contract Dispute with Mamelodi Sundowns in South African Football Drama

Grant Kekana, the stalwart defender for both Bafana Bafana and Mamelodi Sundowns, is reportedly considering a switch to Kaizer Chiefs.

Having been with Sundowns since 2021, Kekana, now 32 years old, has formed a robust partnership alongside Mothobi Mvala.

However, his contract is nearing its end this month, and negotiations for a new deal seem to have hit a snag.

Reports suggest that while a new two-year contract was offered, it came without a salary increase, prompting Kekana to explore other options.

Sources close to the situation have voiced concerns over the disparity in earnings between local talents like Kekana and high-profile international signings at Sundowns.

Despite consistent contributions on the field and accolades such as Defender of the Season and appearances for Bafana Bafana, Kekana feels undervalued in contract negotiations.

The Sporting Director’s apparent indifference to his contributions has left Kekana disheartened.

Kaizer Chiefs as an Alternative

Should negotiations with Sundowns remain unresolved, Kaizer Chiefs emerges as a viable alternative for Kekana.

While expressing a desire to stay, Kekana recognizes that Chiefs may offer more favorable terms, making it an attractive prospect amidst uncertainty following Sundowns’ recent coaching changes.

This situation reflects broader concerns among local players about equitable treatment and recognition within South African football clubs, highlighting the delicate balance between loyalty and financial fairness in player contract negotiations.
