Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung insist that he is not bitter about losing out on the signature of playmaker Sibusiso Vilakazi to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Chiefs had been openly courting Vilakazi for the last two years but failed to reach an agreement with Wits.

Sundowns outbid Chiefs for the midfielder after offering Mogakalodi Ngele and Cuthbert Malajila as part of the deal.

"He's never been a Chiefs player and we appreciate that he's finally moved on from Wits and if Sundowns is what his destiny was supposed to be, so be it and we accept it," Motaung told KickOff.

"I mean it's what maybe was destined for him so we're not jealous, we're not unhappy. It's not for us to say anything, it's for Sundowns and Wits.

"It looks like a good deal, Wits have benefited well from that deal. It's okay but for us there's no hard feelings at all."
