Chiefs offer R5m for Mathoho

2012-06-13 09:22

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs have made a R5-million offer to Bloemfontein Celtic for defender Mulomowandau Mathoho, according to a report on the Sowetan website.

"Mathoho is still number one on our wish list," said Amakhosi general manager Bobby Motaung.

He said Chiefs had approached Celtic directly with the offer.

"Whether it is this week, next month or even next year, we want the player to come to Chiefs. I hope Celtic will come back with a positive response. His jersey is waiting for him in Naturena," said Motaung.

Sowetan has learnt that free-spending Mamelodi Sundowns are also after Mathoho's signature.

The lanky Bafana defender is reported to have told Celtic bosses to forget about taking him to Chloorkop, saying he wanted to go to Naturena where he believes he will get regular game time.

Celtic chief executive Khumbulani Konco said: "At the moment Mathoho is still our player, we will release him as soon as we find a replacement."

    Mathoho, Gaxa, and Gould.... wtf? We need to score goals than defending.

      A good defence can make a differrence in winning or drawing and drawing or losing. With a good defence the midfield focuses on attacking and scoring. Besides the extra height gives an advantage in set pieces and Gould and Mathoho have been scoring crucial goals in the past. Chiefs generally performs better by conceding less, not as much on scoring more. If Swallows defended as well as they scored they would have won the league. Valid point though and I think management will look at getting attacking players!
