Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs' general manager, Bobby Motaung, on Thursday responded to allegations made on radio by Jimmy Tau that the right-back was released last month for "non-football" reasons, according to the Sowetanlive website.

"I am displeased how Jimmy handled the matter. It is normal business that, when a contract ends, two parties need to negotiate. Jimmy got injured and was out of the team for a season, while the team did well, acquiring others in that position," explained Motaung.

"[Hypothetically], if Jimmy wants a R2 million signing-on fee, he would have to be a player guaranteed to play for 90 minutes."

Motaung also denied reports that Chiefs made an offer to SuperSport United for midfielder Kermit Erasmus.
