Motaung: Mathoho’s future at Kaizer Chiefs is safe

Tower’s current deal will come to an end in June this year, but Chiefs are confident he will extend his contract with them for the foreseeable future

Kaizer Chiefs are remaining calm over the future of centre-back Erick Mathoho, whose current contract is up at the end of the season.

Football manager Bobby Motaung told Goal that a meeting is already lined up with Mathoho and his agent, Tim Sukazi, to discuss the possibility of extending his stay at the club.

Having already entered the final six months of his current deal with the Glamour Boys, Mathoho is eligible to sign a pre-contract with a club of his choice.

Chiefs lost a few of their senior players in the past, including Tefu Mashamaite, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Mandla among others after leaving contractual talks too late.   

However, Motaung hasn’t started pressing the panic button as yet; saying the 26-year-old’s future at the club is “safe”.

“I will speak to Mathoho and his agent sometime this week… no pressure. His future [at the club] is safe,” Motaung told Goal.

Motaung revealed that he hasn’t been able to discuss anything with either the player or his agent as he was out of the country and only returned this past weekend.

“I have been overseas. I haven’t been to work, but maybe there will be an update later in the week,” he said.

Mathoho has been an integral member of Steve Komphela’s team over the last two seasons, and while there have been reports that he may soon leave for Europe, the player appears likely to stay at the club for the foreseeable future.
