Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs team manager Bobby Motaung has dismissed claims that the club did not engage the affected players before terminating their contracts this week.

On Thursday, the Sowetan reported that several Amakhosi players had asked the South African Football Players Union to intervene after they were unfairly sacked by the club on Tuesday.

Chiefs released a whole host of players, including defender Siboniso Gaxa, who claims he only found out via a TV news bulletin that his services were no longer required at Naturena.

However, Motaung maintains everyone was made aware of the situation and all parties involved parted amicably.

"No player can say they were not consulted," Motaung told the Sowetan.

"Some players signed settlement agreements, others have termination letters," he added.

"If Pa (Gaxa) has a problem, he must come to us at the (Chiefs) Village. We have an open-door policy and we can explain everything. I'm not going to comment on what happened last year."
