This season, the veteran defender has yet to appear in a competitive match for Amakhosi.
Mphahlele did not appear in any of the Chiefs' six Premier Soccer League matches, as well as an MTN8 encounter.
After being chosen for the team by fans, he only appeared in the season opener, the Carling Black Label Cup.
Although his Chiefs contract expires in June 2022, there have been rumors that he could be released in January as he struggles for playing time.
According to Sun Sport, Motaung stated, "Rama is still a part of this team."
"We've barely played five games and already there's talk of players being released." Every player remains a member of the Chiefs."
Mphahlele joined Amakhosi from Mamelodi Sundowns in July 2016, where he was captain, and Masandawana went on to win the Caf Champions League three months after he left.
For the previous three seasons, his prospects of playing for the Chiefs have been limited, mostly due to injuries.
He was named Amakhosi captain by previous Amakhosi coach Gavin Hunt just last season, but his fortunes have since deteriorated, with only two appearances on the Chiefs replacements bench this season.
Siyabonga Ngezana's long-term injury was expected to provide Mphahlele some playing time.
However, after Njabulo Blom was converted to a right-back and subsequently the arrival of Reeve Frosler, his playing opportunities have dwindled even more.
Mphahlale can also play in central defense, although there has been heavy competition in that area, with new players like Austin Dube and Njabulo Ngcobo battling for a spot.
Mphahlele appeared to be in coach Stuart Baxter's plans when he came, and he played the entire match in the Caf Champions League final against Al Ahly in July.
It's unclear whether the former Sundowns captain would be considered for the Chiefs' forthcoming games.
On Saturday, Amakhosi welcome Chippa United at FNB Stadium to continue their Premier Soccer League season.
