Cape Town - The career of former Amajita captain Ayabulela Konqobe has been called into question once again, this time by Chippa United boss Chippa Mpengesi.

After starring for Thanda Royal Zulu in their promotion winning National First Division campaign last season, it seemed as if the former Ajax Cape Town trainee had his career back on track.

However, with TRZ selling their top-flight status to one of Konqobe's former club's Amazulu, the club reported that he will return to Usuthu for next season in the Premiership.

Nonetheless, recent statements in local media claim the eccentric defender has signed multiple contracts and one of those deals was signed with the Chilli Boys - according to the owner of the club.

"We have a three-year contract with the player," he told Soccer Laduma. "We are waiting for his arrival in Port Elizabeth unless he doesn't want to play football.

"You can't sign a contract with a club and go on to sign another one with another club. The boy has now signed with AmaZulu.

"We have opened a case at the (PSL) DRC. He won’t play. He is our player and I'm waiting for him," the outspoken Mpangesi added.

"I will not allow the boy to play for another club – over my dead body."
