Chiefs offer R5-m for Mathoho

By Ramatsiyi Moholoa and Nick Said | Jun 13, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 96 ]

KAIZER Chiefs have made a R5-million offer to Bloemfontein Celtic for defender Mulomowandau Mathoho.

"Mathoho is still number one on our wish list," said Amakhosi general manager Bobby Motaung.

He said Chiefs had approached Celtic directly with the offer.

"Whether it is this week, next month or even next year, we want the player to come to Chiefs. I hope Celtic will come back with a positive response. His jersey is waiting for him in Naturena," said Motaung.

Sowetan has learnt that free-spending Mamelodi Sundowns are also after Mathoho's signature.

The lanky Bafana defender is reported to have told Celtic bosses to forget about taking him to Chloorkop, saying he wanted to go to Naturena where he believes he will get regular game time.

Celtic chief executive Khumbulani Konco said: "At the moment Mathoho is still our player, we will release him as soon as we find a replacement."

Amakhosi are also courting Leopards' trusty striker Kingston Nkatha but club boss David Thidiela says the Zimbabwean is not for sale.

Thidiela confirmed that Chiefs had wanted to buy Nkatha, but the approach had been rejected. "There is no way I will sell any player," said Thidiela. "(Instead) I'm beefing up the team so we do well in the CAF Confederation Cup."

Leopards are due to meet El Merreikh of Sudan next month in the continental tournament. Thidiela contradicted Leopards spokesman Tendani Thidiela, who said the club would seek a player and cash in return for Nkatha. He suggested that such a player could be Chiefs centre-back Thomas Sweswe.

"We would not look at a straight swap because Kingston holds a higher value than Sweswe, but Thomas would be a good addition to our squad and if he were to form part of a deal that sees Kingston go to Chiefs then we would welcome that," said Thidiela jnr.

Nkatha, 26, had a fine end to the 2011-12 PSL season, his goals in both the league and the CAF Confederation Cup helping Leopards to top-flight survival and the playoff rounds of the African club competition.

You see dadaman1 does not like to see fair competition. Chiefs is trying to beef up its squad for next season so that the cup drought at Naturena can come to an end, which is good and commendable but this ddaman1 does not see it that way. He is suffering from verbal diarrhea because each time he opens his mouth he is bound to say wrong things.
You see Orlando Pirates went on a buying spree and managed to take everything that was on offer so what is wrong when Chiefs does the same. We need quality football and perfomance from Chiefs, we cannot settle for anything less.
Viva Kaizer Chiefs Viva!
