Mathoho next in Kaizer Chiefs' firing line?

The Chiefs' next objective is Mathoho.

After 10 years of service, Mulomowandau "Tower" Mathoho, a defender for Kaizer Chiefs, will be the newest player whose future with the Soweto giants is in doubt.

Mathoho will begin the last year of his current deal on July 1. His battle for a contract extension to remain at Naturena during the future season will probably be vital.

The decision to extend the contract of the 33-year-old lanky defender will be heavily influenced by the sizeable compensation amount.

Despite a difficult conclusion to the previous season, the Bafana Bafana international escaped termination because he still had one year left on his contract.

When he played against Golden Arrows in March, it was his final game wearing a Chiefs uniform. He made a terrible mistake that allowed Knox Mutizwa to score the game's lone goal.

In the final 10 games of the Stuart Baxter season, the seasoned defender was taken off the field at halftime and did not come back. Arthur Zwane sat the defender on the bench before bringing him back.

The team is still optimistic that Mathoho will have a fresh start and better form in the next season despite his 258 appearances and 25 goals for Chiefs so far.
