Chiefs drop salary bill for new season

In recent years, several players have received extravagant gifts from Chiefs that resembled confetti at a wedding, which prompted the club to respond with a massive clearout.


Leonardo Castro, Samir Nurkovic, Lazarous Kambole, Bernard Parker, Kearyn Baccus, Daniel Cardoso, Lebogang Manyama, Daniel Akpeyi, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Dumisani Zuma, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, and Teddy Akumu are just a few of the departures from AmaKhosi during their busy break.


With the majority of the players dismissed earning six-figure salaries, the total annual package bill for all players released exceeded R30 million annually.

These packages put Chiefs' finances at risk and did not make financial sense for a team that has struggled with dubious senior player performances and a lack of trophy wins since 2015.


The value of what Castro, Nurkovic, Parker, Cardoso, Akpeyi, and Manyama contributed to the team in exchange for the money they were making left a lot to be desired, while Mphahlele, Baccus, Zuma, Kambole, Akumu, and Ntiya-continued Ntiya's employment at the club was not well supported.


The club's response to the departures was to reduce the amount they will be paying.


Yusuf Maart, a midfielder who joined from Sekhukhune United on a six-figure salary, is at the top of the list of those who have moved in. Siyethemba Sithebe is listed as second.
