New signing at Kaizer Chiefs

By Sisa Majola | Jun 23, 2011 | COMMENTS [ 11 ]

Kaizer Chiefs announced another defensive signing having scooped  the signature of talented wingback Keegan Ritchie from Moroka Swallows

Ritchie, 21, penned a three-year-contract with the club at an undiclosed fee ending a two season stint with The Birds that also saw him make fringe selection for the Bafana Bafana  set up.

This was confirmed by Chiefs’ football manager Bobby Motaung.

The club recently bought two defenders in Bidvest Wits’ Tefu Mashamaite and Brett Lawler, who was playing his football in the United States.

Motaung said at the end of last season that Chiefs would be busy  in the transfer market in the off-season in preparation for next season with the side in search of their first Premiership title in seven seasons.

“We have signed Ritchie, unfortunately we don’t disclose transfer figures but the deal was concluded yesterday,” said Motaung.

Motaung told the club’s website that the side and coach Vladimir Vermezovic have been following Ritchie’s progress with negotiations having started towards the end of last season.

“We had been following Keegan from last season, even the coach was impressed with him,” he said.

“He is versatile and can also play in the centre. We identified the defence as one of the departments to strengthen for next season  as we hope to bring more silverware to the club.”   

Ritchie said that it was a “dream come true” to join Amakhosi where he is expected to compete with regular Punch Masenamela for the left-back position.

“I’m looking forward to learning from Punch and (second left-back) Jimmy Jambo and working with them as a group, they are more experienced players,” said Ritchie.

“I want to give my best at the club and not disappoint the coach  or the chairman for the faith they have shown in my abilities as a player — I share the same ambition of winning titles.

“I also want to thank Swallows for giving me the platform as a player.”   

  • Motaung also announced that striker Nkosinathi Nhleko and defender Wayne Matle will not have their contracts renewed, while striker Stanton Lewis has not been offered a contract.

The former Ajax Cape Town player was on loan for the latter half  of last season but failed to impress the technical staff to offer him a longer stay. - Sapa

There is no need of disclosing zero transfer figures mr Bobsteak, we know and you know chimps never pay for players. Who are you trying to fool here. The only player you paid for was Musunu with that truck full of cabbages.

@marapo-a-baswi
why don't you comment about your chairman who made a blunder by chasing away a good coach who won three cups in one season? is it because you agree with him that 'rudi krol'make terrible mistake by winning cups which you are not familier with? is chiefs the only club you hate in the whole psl? is it because they gave pirates 6-1 in two weeks? or is it because they have more cups than pirates? but you know the correct answear.
