Kaizer Chiefs Part Ways with Puso Dithejane
The relationship between Kaizer Chiefs and young talent Puso Dithejane has taken an unexpected turn, as the club reportedly released the 19-year-old player following a dispute.
The Ball Boy Role
According to sources, Kaizer Chiefs had assigned Dithejane the role of a ball boy/ball retriever during a match at FNB Stadium against AmaZulu.
Refusal Leads to Disciplinary Action
However, things went awry when Dithejane refused to fulfill this duty.
In response, the club took disciplinary action by releasing the South African U20 international right-back, as reported by iDiskiTimes.
Clearance and Financial Clause
The situation became even more complex when Dithejane attempted to collect his clearance from Naturena Village, the club’s training facility.
It appears that there were complications, including a clause requiring a fee of R1.5 million to be paid to Chiefs by any club interested in signing him.
A Pending Discussion
As a result, he was unable to obtain his clearance and was instructed to return on Tuesday for discussions regarding the clearance and the associated issues.
Upcoming Debut for Interim Coach Cavin Johnson
Meanwhile, Kaizer Chiefs’ new interim coach, Cavin Johnson, is on the brink of making his debut for the club.
The team is set to face Golden Arrows at the Mpumalanga Stadium in Hammersdale on Saturday at 15:30.
It’s important to note that the details surrounding Puso Dithejane’s departure from Kaizer Chiefs are still emerging, and the situation may continue to develop.
This decision appears to be a response to the player’s refusal to perform his assigned role during a match.
It will be interesting to see how this situation unfolds and whether Dithejane will find a new club after these developments.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
