Newly Kaizer Chiefs young players released drops an unexpected bombshell to Baxter

A former Kaizer Chiefs player has hit out at his lack of opportunities after being released by the Soweto giants.From rising through the ranks at Naturena while earning caps as a junior international, Itumeleng 'Jomo' Shopane is now left without a club following the termination of his contract.

The 24-year-old spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Swallows in the GladAfrica Championship, making 18 appearances as The Birds won promotion to the DStv Premiership.

Shopane had spent last season on the sidelines after an unfortunate set of circumstances due to injury that sees him now as a free agent.In my case, I never got the chance at Chiefs even though I tried to put myself out there," Shopane tells

The sad part is they realese players when the transfer window is closed,This is so unprofessional. Atleast Sundowns try hard to find loan move for their players. Tell me who is killing the young talent now.

These youngsters must do some self introspection for a change. Chiefs gave Jabu Mahlangu, Khanye, Skaapie, Malope, etc chances to play soccer and make a careers for themselves.

They kept messing up and never bothered to improve their performances. Same with Ekstein, Letlotlo and now this one. Maybe it's time they go to school like one left back did after Laffor moment.All Kaizer Chiefs loanee never return I doubt Sifama, Lesako, Matsheke and Mokoena will return. 

But u seem like u already saw yourself as a star already anyway gudluck .if you find another team please try to be humble nomatter how good you think you are.
