Marketing manager for Kaizer Chiefs,
Jessica Motaung, has revealed the club are currently in discussions regarding
the future of George Maluleka.
Maluleka stunned Amakhosi when it was revealed he had signed a pre-contract agreement with rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.
The midfielder had entered the last six months of his contract and was therefore free to discuss terms with other clubs.
It also means 31-year-old will leave Chiefs for free when his contract expires at the end of the season.
"The future of George with the club is being addressed with the coach
and the technical team and in due course, it will be very clear," she
"George made his decision on his own. The conclusion of whether he
stays or not for the last six months and timelines of it is what we have
to look at, but he has made his decision and we wish him well with
However, she also revealed the issue of Maluleka's future was not
their top priority as they continue to deal with the escalating fallout
from the coronavirus that has seen various sporting events
cancelled around the world, including all football in South Africa.
"I can't even focus on George. Right now, our focus is making sure
that everyone is safe and fit; that is the most important thing for us
right now," she added.
"The issue right now is that we are dealing with this coronavirus
thing for the whole team and the staff. For now, we have just moved on
at such speed with this abnormal situation of coronavirus and the George
scenario has been reduced in terms of amplification."
