Mazembe: No approach from Pirates for Kalaba

Posted: 25 January 2013 Time: 09:48 am

TP Mazembe have denied there has been any official approach for Zambia winger Rainford Kalaba from Orlando Pirates.

Kalaba, who is due to play for Chipolopolo against Nigeria today in their second match of Afcon 2013, has been linked with a switch to the Buccaneers since the start of the January transfer window.

Pirates had hoped to tie up his signature before the deadline for registering players in the CAF Champions League on January 15 but he has now been submitted as part of the DR Congo side's squad.

And Mazembe official Andre Mtine confirms they have yet to receive any approach for the 26-year-old winger.

"There's nothing going on," he tells KickOff.com.

"We've read everything we can read about him in the newspapers but no one has written to us. We've registered him for the Champions League because as far as we're concerned he's still registered with us and has four years on his contract to go."

Kalaba has had spells in France, Portugal and Egypt but joined Mazembe in 2011.

Will leave this Dr Khoza to deal with, at this stage we just want to hail the veteran Neil Tovey for speaking out.

Guys: Masilela is not the same anymore, he must be dropped for good, if it was n't for Parker, we would be talking another story. The guy is tired plus Matlaba was drooped for no reason.

Can you leave Bafana alone please and focus on the subject that your team cannot afford Kalaba. Matlaba is in-experienced and he showed that, no need to complain we support everyone in the team but this unfit Tshepo showed to be 99.9999% Better than Matlaba

Matlaba is a rookie and he still struggles to read the game at this level...he is better off coming off the bench if we need him....He is a talented player but he needs to take a note book and a pen and continue to take some notes from Masilela...

Aaarg please now, are they trying to buy Kalaba through the media? ........Chinyama's former still yet to receive full payment. They were told ,OP does not do eletronic transfer, and the 2nd installment was supposedly lost en-route to Zimbwabwe, apparently Augusto Palacious and the other guy, who were supposed to deliver the Two Hundred Fifty Rands Only envelope took a detour, when they saw the ladies cleaning at the Border gates......

And Mayambela signs for Chipa? Come journos we need facts not fiction....Up the bucs for eternity with or without Kalaba

Now I wonder if the story of AMAKHOSI signing two players being true or you just wanted us to get excited and read your "comme ci comme ca" articles.

Anyway, looking forward to a great game between Nigeria and Zambia. Goodluck to them

Kick Off is trying so hard to jeopardise any chance of Orlando Pirates getting their targets

FIRST:They spred lies about Lawal and ran to speak to MU Management even when the Player himself had said his focus is at the AFCON

SECONDLY:Kalaba said it himselt that Orlando Pirates are speaking to Mazembe yet Kick Off is busy trying to interfere with the talks

THIRDLY:Kick Off sent out lies that Orlando Pirates does not want Drogba to go to Israel even before verifying if the team got any request for that

Kick Off:You are a Chiefs Propagandist

The glamour that Kalaba is currently experiencing in Mzanzi and those beautiful chicks that he meet everyday will be the ticket for him signing with the Mighty Buccanears + the good news that the former and current Pirates Zambian players always tell the boy. So we don't need TP Mazembe to convice this boi.

To be fair i support DRC on this AFCON, but i don't think there is one beautiful chick in that war torn country, no disrespect intended here.

I must agree with Trebble Champ.
matlaba has been solid and gives great options going forward and also solid in defence.
similar to what Dani Alves used to do under Pep Guardiola.
The best way to learn and gain experience is to get minutes under your belt.
Look ghow well Thomas Muller did as a rookie.

Chiefs fans shouldnt be apologetic about players being in the national team, infact there should be more considering Gould and Mathohos injuries, but thats the story for another day, Pirates striking force is full on foreigeners, you cant pick underperformers like Mbuyane and Mabena, Parker and Majoro deserve to be there, majoros goals are more than all pirates stikers combined. Who wants old Lekgwathi and stupid mahamutsa to marshal the defence? We all know Meyiwa aspire to be like Khune so thats sorted. klate has been given so many chances and he still uderperforms in the national team. Miyeni was given a chance but Phalas impact was extreme compared to Miyeni in the national team. Andile Jali, shame ill descipline can make one loose alot of things in life, ask naughty mokoena, So Yeye it is. Manyisa is not a national team material, it even took him ages to make it in the Pirates staring line up. So Chiefs shouldnt be apologetic for having a crop of quality. so its still up to an individual whether they support the national team or not, when we win we win as South Africa, when we loose we loose as South Africa.

Mind you Chiefs has the best goalkeeper trainer in South Africa, so its not an issues that he failed trial somewhere. Even if Chiefs can take Ndumiso RVP Mabena & convert him to be a goalkeeper, he can be the No 1 goalkeeper for Bafana Bafana with Senzo and Josephs as the 2nd & 3rd respectively.

We signed Gcaba around the same time for R3.5m. We also got the same vodacom money (apart from trebles millions) that they got that made them to go on shopping spree. Rantie did very well on loan and we needed a striker, just like we still do. There is no way that we wouldnt sign him for R2m. Hence this R2m joke is lame

Manyisa is not a national team material, it even took him ages to make it in the Pirates staring line up. So Chiefs shouldnt be apologetic for having a crop of quality. so its still up to an individual whether they support the national team or not, when we win we win as South Africa, when we loose we loose as South Africa.

I personally dont care how many Bucs players are playing for BB. If Bucs is doing well then I am cool. As a South African I support BB irrespective of who gets selected but I dont get as hurt as I get when my team (Bucs) isnt doing well. BB can have the whole tortoises in the starting line up including kaizer jnr, ngcobo, they can even naturalize tortoises fan favourite player , Svasiya and play him at BB , I dont care.

At Pirates we dont trust at individuals but the whole team as we believe every achievement is team effort. In the last 12 games , 10 different players have scored, we call that TEAM effort. We have won double treble but never had PSL topgoalscorer (let other teams have psl topgoalscorers, while we have league titles). We accelerated from 7pt difference behind log leaders to only 1pt difference all owing to TEAM effort.

I will rather wait for Kalaba even if it takes 5 years than to sign a goalkeeper that failed trials at Swallows,Wits and @ Bucs
...........................................................................................................................................................
Mind you Chiefs has the best goalkeeper trainer in South Africa, so its not an issues that he failed trial somewhere. Even if Chiefs can take Ndumiso RVP Mabena & convert him to be a goalkeeper, he can be the No 1 goalkeeper for Bafana Bafana with Senzo and Josephs as the 2nd & 3rd respectively.

I also heard that Metsimetsi was gonna be turned into the no1 goalie for Bafana Bafana, and I am still waiting to this day

Katumbi told me that sundowns pays more for sunzu than Reading and he wanted katongo and chansa remember they are free agents but now chansa wants to stay in SA with chiefs and katongo has already agreed with chiefs but only waiting to reveal him after caf games remember chiefs signed a keeper and another player(Unnamed).According to katumbi,chiefs are organising a permanent residency for chansa so that he can easily join not as a foreigner.

Mazembe: No approach from Pirates for Kalaba
TP Mazembe deny there has been any official approach for Rainford Kalaba from Orlando Pirates.
Posted: 25 January 2013 Time: 09:48 am
Print this articleTP Mazembe have denied there has been any official approach for Zambia winger Rainford Kalaba from Orlando Pirates.

Kalaba, who is due to play for Chipolopolo against Nigeria today in their second match of Afcon 2013, has been linked with a switch to the Buccaneers since the start of the January transfer window.

Pirates had hoped to tie up his signature before the deadline for registering players in the CAF Champions League on January 15 but he has now been submitted as part of the DR Congo side's squad.

And Mazembe official Andre Mtine confirms they have yet to receive any approach for the 26-year-old winger.

"There's nothing going on," he tells KickOff.com.

"We've read everything we can read about him in the newspapers but no one has written to us. We've registered him for the Champions League because as far as we're concerned he's still registered with us and has four years on his contract to go."

Kalaba has had spells in France, Portugal and Egypt but joined Mazembe in 2011.

I said it 2/3 months back that if anything Kalaba will only join in July/August... what are these inbred cross-dressing Zebras making a noise about...?

We can even forget about Kalaba if we must....

As managament we've already made inquiries on that no.10 from Mali, Maiga or something like that..... O oohh... there's something special there... watch this space...

Its not the 1st time Mazembe says they aint approached by Pirates as the recent article talked about Mazembe saying Kalaba link to Bucs is nonsense, and I dont really need to put my views across regarding that each time in the article with a similar content. Like the rest of the bloggers, I do respond when I feel like, as this(blog) is also supposed to be a conversation than only about one’s direct view of what’s in the article and when doing that I am not doing something different to other bloggers.

Still without Kalaba we will beat these Chimpanzees and other teams. Must i remind these derogatory animals that PIRATES is not a 1 man team. We will still win the league without him.

That's too bad let's hope Dr Khoza will make a plan as always and I beg the media to stop making these announcement as if they are sure for how long must we be lied too some journos just write for the sake of writing and giving us false hope...wasn't it Kickoff who said Kalaba to finalise the contract in less than a week or so with Pirates? And Mayambela signs for Chipa? Come journos we need facts not fiction....Up the bucs for eternity with or without Kalaba
