Maluleka to leave Chiefs for Sundowns

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The contract talks between Kaizer Chiefs and midfielder George ‘Mido’ Maluleka have reached an unexpected ending, according to the club’s Twitter page.

The Club twitted this news on Wednesday afternoon as Breaking News.

Kaizer Chiefs say they offered the 31-year-old a two-year contract extension plus one-year option to renew on his current contract, but he turned it down.

Amakhosi Facebook page reports that Sundowns have not informed Chiefs about their engagements with Maluleka as protocol dictates.

Maluleka joined Kaizer Chiefs in January 2014 and his current contract is due to end on 30 June 2020.

The defending champions Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane announced on the weekend that his club has signed three players, but didn’t mention them.

It remains to be seen how Chiefs are going to handle the matter going forward as they are preoccupied with maintaining their position at the top of the table and may not afford to tamper with the team at this crucial stage of the season.

But questions over Maluleka’s commitment to the cause are bound to come up.
