“I wouldn’t say I lack match fitness, because I have been heavily involved with the reserve team, though I understand that it is not the same level as the league games,” he said.

The 32-year-old Tau remained secretive about his future at Kaizer Chiefs, as his contract is coming to an end in June, but he revealed that he still wants to play for the current PSL log leaders.

“My agent is dealing with the contract negotiations and I cannot say anything about it at this stage, but I would love to stay,” added Jimmy Tau.

Meanwhile Amakhosi have been dealt with a huge blow, as defender Morgan Gould is expected to see a specialist today (Monday) following a successful scan on Sunday afternoon.

However, reports suggest that Gould could miss the remainder of the season due to a knee injury he sustained in a game between Chiefs and Golden Arrows on Saturday afternoon.

With Morgan Gould now injured, coach Stuart Baxter could recall Jimmy Tau back to the team to bring stability to the Chiefs defence.
