Motaung promises two more signings at Kaizer Chiefs

Chiefs signed Levy Mokgothu, Siphelele Mthembu, Eksteen, Macheke and Matombo, but Motaung told reporters that there will be more acquisitions in the upcoming weeks
Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has said that the club is not yet done in the market despite bringing in five new faces in the current Transfer Window.

The Soweto giants unveiled their new signings on Wednesday morning, but Motaung revealed that they will add at least two more players before the window period closes at the end of August.

"There are two more players that I think we are identifying and trying to look and then consolidate, and once that happens we will make an announcement," said Motaung.

Meanwhile, Motaung also confirmed that Mandla Masango remains in Stuart Baxter's plans for next season as he still has a year left on his current contract.

Goal reported last month that Masango refused to be loaned out to Moroka Swallows, with a number of PSL clubs also failing to secure his services. 

Although he didn't mention any names, Motaung admitted that the club initially wanted to loan out four players instead of two. Philani Cele and Lucky Baloyi were both sent out on loan to the Dube Birds.

"We were supposed to have actually loaned out four players. Unfortunately the clubs couldn't agree with us in terms of acquiring those players. We've kept them and we've only released two players - Philani Cele and Lucky Baloyi," Motaung said.

Still in the AmaKhosi camp, Zimbabwean defender Jimmy Jambo has decided to call it a day to his professional football after struggling to recover properly from a broken leg injury that he suffered in October 2012.

"Jimmy Jambo has decided to hang up his boots due to the injury he got two seasons ago," confirmed Motaung.
