Chiefs Open Contract Talks With One Of Its Longest Serving Players

Kaizer Chiefs have opened contract talks with former Moroka Swallows and Mamelodi Sundowns defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele, who has seen a regular game time this season under coach Gavin Hunt.

Mphahlele current deal with amakhosi will expire at the end of this season. Although the club has an option to extend it. The 31-year old did not play regular under coach Erns Middendorp last season but his Fortunes have changed since the arrival of Gavin Hunt.

He has been shifted from the right back to the central defence and has performed well. What's mostly encouraging iscthat he was confirmed by Hunt as the club permanent captain.

Soccer-laduma recently reported that Chiefs had not opened any contract talks with Mphahlele, instead they wanted to exercise their one-year option. But now instead of exercising their option they are looking at giving Mphahlele atleast a new two-year deal.

Mphahlele recently returned from an injury has played 18 matches in all competitions for amakhosi this season. He is definitely in Hunt plans. As he considers him to be one of the leaders and someone who will form part of his team regular next season.

But it remains to be seen if Gavin Hunt will still be in charge of the club. In the 2021/22 season. The club is currently having one of its worst deasons currently, and they are struggling to win games consistently.
