KAIZER CHIEFS TO REWARD MATLOU
“The technical team is happy with his attitude and performance this season and they are the ones who recommended that he be kept at the team for atleast a further year.
“And management had decided to offer him that one-year contract plus a one-year option. His current contract ends in June 2024 so that means he could be on the team until 2026 if the team exercises the one-year option,” Soccer Laduma said on Wednesday.
Last month, Matlou impressed the Kaizer Chiefs technical team when he made his first league start against Moroka Swallows.
“I think his [Matlou] performance has been very good, even from last season, but the unfortunate part is that he had too many injuries,” Ntseki said after the game.
“In the pre-season, George was one of the best players we had in camp, but he could not play the preparations matches because he was injured.
“But I think it’s good when you give a player confidence, to say you are rewarded for the hard work you put in training. For the past two matches, he has been coming in as a substitute and he gave us a lot of balance in terms of his tactical understanding of the game.”
