In Shock| Two Kaizer Chiefs Top Players Are Not In The Updated Squad For 2021-22 Season

Lazarous Kambole and Siphosakhe Ntiya-fates Ntiya's with Kaizer Chiefs look to have been decided for the 2021-22 PSL season. 

Kambole and Ntiya-Ntiya were among the Chiefs' transfer-listed players at the end of last season, indicating that they were open to bids. 

While there was rumoured interest, particularly for Kambole, nothing transpired because the duo were unable to move before the transfer market closed on August 31.

The Chiefs' first-team squad for the season has been updated on their website, and both Kambole and Ntiya-Ntiya have been left out. 

However, neither Kambole's nor Ntiya-jersey Ntiya's numbers – No.7 for Kambole and No.36 for Ntiya-Ntiya – have been assigned to anyone on the team. 

At this time, it's unknown whether the two are registered with the PSL and will play for Chiefs this season. 

If that isn't the case, the two players have a good chance of leaving Chiefs when the mid-season transfer market opens in January.

If both Kambole and Ntiya-Ntiya agree to split ways amicably now, they will have to wait until the next transfer market opens before returning to football. 

This is due to FIFA rules prohibiting players who were not free agents at the end of the previous transfer window from signing with any team outside of the transfer window.

Thabani Dube, a defender for the Kaizer Chiefs, says he had to stay ready to make an impression when given the chance in the club. 

Chiefs signed Dube from Richards Bay FC of the GladAfrica Championship in KwaZulu-Natal. 

While fans were ecstatic with his and Njabulo Ngcobo's signings, expecting a strong partnership, Stuart Baxter, the coach, has stated that they will be progressively integrated into the club.

During the Cosafa Cup, Dube and Ngcobo played together for Bafana Bafana and appeared to have formed an instant bond. While Ngcobo has yet to be named to the matchday roster, Dube has already played a few minutes for Amakhosi. In last week's DStv Premiership triumph over Baroka, he came on as a second-half substitute. 

“I was overjoyed that it had finally occurred... I knew it would happen eventually, but I didn't know when,” Dube told the club's website. 

“I had to prepare for it, and I am pleased to have played my first official game in Kaizer Chiefs colors.”

The Chiefs' move is one of the top deals in the agent's top deals. 

Basia Michaels is a 31-year-old woman in a male-dominated sector who has quickly established herself as one of South Africa's top agents. 

She's done it... 

“When Covid hit last year, the widespread consensus was that we wouldn't be able to accomplish anything. Michaels told the Siya crew that there was a lot of uncertainty regarding football. 

“However, we at QT Sports accomplished a great deal. We were able to get Xola Mlambo and Luvuyo Memela to AmaZulu, and it's clear that they've joined an ambitious club with a president who is dedicated to seeing the squad thrive in Sandile Zungu.”

Then there was the deal Michaels called "a highlight" of the two July-August transfer windows, which are typically hectic as teams try to create the finest squads possible while keeping an eye on their finances. 

Covid caused some of them to examine their spending more thoroughly. 

“I believe transferring Austin Dube to Kaizer Chiefs (from Richards Bay) was a significant move for us because he would now play with someone we already have in our stable. Erick Mathoho is a left-footed player who is the future generation, and he might be the center back partnership with Austin at some point,” Michaels remarked.
