A number of Amakhosi's top players, including Itumeleng Khune, Tefu Mashamaite and Mandla Masango, still have not signed new deals with Chiefs despite their current contracts expiring at the end of June.

Speculation has been rife as to why this has been the case but Motaung made certain who he thinks is to blame for the delays.

"We know the intricacies of contract renewals," he told KickOff.

"If I tell you that we started negotiating with some of our players a year ago, you won't believe me, but there is another element that plays a part in negotiations.

Motaung points the finger at agents for all the stalled negotiations between the club and several of the players representatives.

"They are the ones who are creating some of the challenges because they obviously have certain tactics to delay the process to get into the [final] six months of the contract because then they have a better leverage in terms of contracts.”
