Kaizer Chiefs Sporting Director Kaizer Motaung Jnr has made a huge admission regarding SuperSport United star midfielder Sipho Mbule.
The Glamour Boys were, not so long ago, heavily linked with Mbule but the player’s agent, Mike Makaab, later confirmed that the Soweto giants only inquire about the 23-year-old’s availability.
Motaung Jnr has admitted that he wants Mbule and that Chiefs and everyone else want the midfielder but there are obstacles.
He said the problem with wanting a player like Mbule from other teams comes when the said team, in this instance SuperSport United, is not interested in releasing the player.
He added that when that happens, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are not willing to pay or bring in quality players to Naturena.
“The thing is, it’s a big misconception. The team has been in the transfer market, the team has gone… Like I said earlier, if, for an example, our fans want Sipho Mbule, I also want Sipho Mbule, we all want Sipho Mbule,” said Motaung Jnr.
“But if Stan Matthews says Sipho Mbule is going nowhere, that’s not me saying that… or the club saying that, ‘we are running away from the number or we don’t want to pay’. It’s all about transactions.”
“And again, we need to understand that a lot of the time, our rivals… people, sometimes don’t want to business with you. That’s just the industry we are in,” he continued.
“So, I just wanted to clear it up that it’s a huge misconception,” he concluded.
