As reported by The South African that Stellies have turned down an offer from Kaizer Chiefs for Sibongiseni Mthethwa, Molefi Ntseki reveals their ambition.
Ntseki was addressing the media and revealed Chiefs would like to lure and have Mthethwa in their roster but it seems the money is an issue – Sowetan posted.
This publication reported that Chiefs tabled an R8 million offer to Stellenbosch but the Cape Winelands side turned it down and reportedly demanded R15 million.
NTSEKI REVEALS AMBITION TO LURE STELLIES STAR
The former Bafana Bafana mentor, Ntseki said Mthethwa could be a crucial addition for Chiefs as they look to challenge for DStv Premiership honours.
“The most important thing is that he’s a good quality player…we’d love to have him any time, whenever he’s available, whenever we have the resources to bring him in,” said Ntseki.
“He’s a good player. In our player audit, we’ve put in so many players even though we’ve never gone public about those players.
“It’s very normal for a team like Kaizer Chiefs to be looking for quality players to strengthen the team. So, the name of Mthethwa is also making the rounds about him coming to Chiefs and there’ve been many other players that were spoken about coming to Kaizer Chiefs.”
NTSEKI ON CHIEFS PLAYERS IN BAFANA AMID INTEREST ON STAR
While it has also surfaced that AmaZulu and Orlando Pirates are interested in Mthethwa, Ntseki said he is delighted to have Chiefs players in the national team.
This comes after Pule Mmodi was roped in by Hugo Broos in the Bafana squad as they faced Namibia and DR Congo during the recent FIFA break.
“As Kaizer Chiefs, we were very happy to see one of our top quality players [Pule Mmodi] being selected for Bafana,” Ntseki added.
“As for whatever happened, the most important thing is that we support our national team. I can only wish coach Hugo the best of luck going into Afcon [in Ivory Coast early next year].”
