Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly considering releasing defender Teenage Hadebe in order to free up some space in their foreign quota.
Chiefs now have seven foreigners on their books following the recent arrival of two Zambia’s Lazarous Kambole, Samir Nurkovi from Serbia and Ghanaian-born midfielder James Kotei.
Each PSL club is allowed a maximum of five foreigners and this means two of the non-South African players in Amakhosi squad will be dropped before the start of the new season.
And according to Sunday World, a South African newspaper, the two players are Hadebe and Colombian striker Leonardo Castro.
“It’s Castro and Hadebe who are going to be sacrificed. Teenage has not reported back as he was at Afcon [with his national team Zimbabwe], but he’s expected back at the village on Wednesday,” an unnamed source told the newspaper.
“You remember that it’s him [Hadebe] who cost Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup final against TS Galaxy; that penalty was conceded by him. That mistake put him in the bad books.”
Meanwhile, Khama Billiat and Willard Katsande are not part of the list as they are registered as local players.
