Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs legend Neil Tovey feels it is in Tefu Mashamaite's best interest to find a compromise with Amakhosi after contract negotiations stalled.

Recent reports coming from Naturena suggest talks have reached an impasse over wage demands, with some claims suggesting the Soweto giants have even parted ways with the club captain.

Tovey believes Mashamaite has every right to be paid his worth, but also stated that both parties had to come to a breakthrough in understanding.

"Masha is a quality player and quality comes at a price, however I do feel that if he was to look for greener pastures elsewhere the only place that would make sense would be overseas," Tovey told Soccer Laduma.

"But right now his home should be Chiefs and he owes it to himself to try and make it work at the club he has played his best football.

Tovey says that the defender has reached a stage in his life where he has to make a critical decision and he needs to be wise with his choices.

"From a playing perspective, Chiefs would be weaker without him as I don't see a better defender right now in the league let alone at Chiefs,” added Tovey.
