AmaZulu’s reason for selling Khuzwayo to Chiefs

AmaZulu have given their reason behind their decision to sell Nhlanhla Khuzwayo to Kaizer Chiefs.
Khuzwayo, who spent this season at Thanda Royal Zulu, will be moving to Naturena in the new season.
Usuthu’s general manager Peter O’Connor says it was in the player’s best interest that the club agreed to the deal with Chiefs.
“Seeing that Tapuwa Kapini has another three years with us, it was agreed that we would release ‘Casillas’ [Khuzwayo] because he wouldn’t be playing as the first-choice goalkeeper,” O’Connor explains.
“So to enable him to get more game-time we have decided to allow him to join Chiefs after they had approached us for his services,” he adds.
Khuzwayo is expected to provide cover for Itumeleng Khune in the new season, while Arthur Bartman is likely to call it quits.
Meanwhile, KickOff.com has been informed that Chiefs have not responded to a new contract proposal submitted by Thela Ngobeni’s agent, Walter Mokoena.
Mokoena submitted a proposal for a new deal early this year, but apparently Ngobeni, whose contract expires at the end of June, could now be deemed surplus to requirements.
