Kaizer Chiefs winger Molangoane knew the Chippa United saga would come to an end

Molangoane was accused of signing a pre-contract with Amakhosi whilst contracted to Chippa, and he had to spend six months without kicking a ball

Joseph Molangoane says he hasn’t felt the pressure of donning the gold and black jersey since arriving at Kaizer Chiefs toward the end of last year.

The speedy winger revealed how senior players at the club made him feel at home and helped him hit the ground running.

“In every team, they’ve got their own way of doing things, but I think it’s more about working together so you don’t feel that much of a pressure,” Molangoane said.

“When I got here, I found senior players who guided me through,” he said.

The 28-year-old also revealed that he knew the contractual saga involving Chippa United was eventually going to come to end, because he had not signed a contract with them.

Chippa United took Molangoane to the PSL DRC after claiming that he had a binding contract with them, but the former Orlando Pirates player eventually won the case after proving that he was never contracted to the Port Elizabth-based outfit.

“I knew it was going to come to an end, because I didn’t sign any contract with them [Chippa United]. I can’t go into details because it’s over, and I am a Kaizer Chiefs player, but it took so much out of me… it wasn’t easy,” Molangoane continued.

Molangoane said he didn’t struggle in his first few weeks at the club, because he had already been training with the first team whilst waiting for the PSL DRC to conclude his case with the Chilli Boys.

“I wasn’t waiting at home doing nothing, because I was here at work. I was always here [at Chiefs] because I knew that I didn’t sign a contract with Chippa,” he concluded.
