Melmoth - Outgoing Kaizer Chiefs striker Siphelele Mthembu said he is not yet concerned about his future following his off-season free transfer from the Phefeni Glamour Boys.

The 28-year-old forward is yet to find a team for the upcoming campaign but insists that he is not ready to talk about his plans for the future as he intends to enjoy the holidays with his family.

'Shaka Zulu' as he is affectionately known, said that he will know about his possible next move in the following month.

“At the moment I’m not really concerned about my future or the next move,” Mthembu told Sport24 in an exclusive interview.

“I’m leaving everything to God for now and the rest is not up to me and this is the time for me to enjoy my holidays without stressing about work related matters.

“Everyone wants to know my next move but I’m not keen to discuss that yet. Even when my family ask me about it, I always tell them not to worry about it.

“The newspapers have been calling me non-stop too, but I tell them the same thing but maybe in the next month I will start discussing my future with everyone.

“But for now I’m requesting everyone, including my family, to let me enjoy my holidays without talking about work.”
