Chiefs to pay R3.5m for star?

2012-07-20 10:34

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed Santos have offered the services of veteran player Erwin Isaacs ahead of the new season.

The 25-year-old midfielder-cum-striker has told the People's Team he is unwilling to go down with the team to the National First Division, which has resulted in the Cape Town outfit taking the decision to put the player up for transfer

Amakhosi football manager Bobby Motaung told Football411 the Soweto club will make a decision on whether to take on the player sometime next week after first consulting with Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung and head coach Stuart Baxter.

"We haven't had a discussion about Erwin Isaacs, but we will meet the chairperson Kaizer Motaung and the coach (on Friday)," he said.

"If the coach wants him, then we will look into it but at the moment what has happened is that Santos have spoken to me about the player and the only thing remaining is to consult with the coach.

"They were in camp and only arrived back on Wednesday so we had to give the coach some time to work with the current team and he will tell us if he needs to reinforce," Motaung stated.

However, 'Bobsteak' added that Santos' approach does not mean Chiefs will definitely buy the player.

"Like I said, we have to speak to the coach and find out if he is keen on further reinforcements of the team. Santos offered me the player, but it all depends on whether Stuart will be interested in the player," he added.

Motaung confirmed the asking price for Isaacs is R3.5 million.

    Erwin is a good player. He can do better for chiefs!

      Isaacs will be nothing but dead wood at chiefs! We don't need him, we already have enough dead wood at chiefs.

      Chiefs can collect as many dead woods as the can, but the fact is… "THIS IS BUCS ERA"… Once and always…

    Chiefs fans have been waiting for this moment for the past 2 seasons. Well it seems like your wishes are about to come through..... Im a bit worried about too many signings. They usually take long to gel and by the time they get to gel together the league hopes have gone....

    I Do Not Believe "Bobsteak" Will Buy The Player! In Th Past Chiefs Have Had The First Option to Buy, Only to Play a Second Fiddle to Clubs Like Pirates and Sundowns! What is This Crap of Asking The Chairperson? Is Kaizer Living Overseas? You Don't Believe Me? Alright, Watch The Space ...

    I disagree wth de pricetag 4 this SANTOS guy,is 2mch 4 chiefs.we hve been chasng this guy 4 years so dis tym he doesn't hv any option bt 2 come 2 NATURENA wth a low pricetag.ERWIN is a good striker n m sure he wl boost our sguad so BOBBY jus go for it

      lethamaga.kanyane - 2012-07-20 22:00

      Isaacs is a better player than Masango. If our coach knows football, he won't waste time but sign this boy. come monday you will hear Melodius team talking about the player as well.

  • Pcleezy.Master - 2012-07-20 16:35

    Yes Buy him and sell Mapholoba with a strike force of Erwin, Majoro, Parker and Kingston, we have a great attack that complements the best midfield unit that is at Naturana #RiseKhosiRise
