Chansa off to China

Orlando Pirates Isaac Chansa transferred to China

Posted: 20 June 2012 Time: 03:47 pm

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that Isaac Chansa has been sold to Henan Jianye FC in China.

Rumours had linked Chansa to Kaizer Chiefs, whose coach Stuart Baxter has a good relationship with the player, but Pirates and Henan Jianye agreed terms on his transfer today.

"Although the club would have liked to keep the Africa Cup of Nations winner at the team for the new season, the player had already expressed his intentions to move overseas for a fresh challenge and hence the club ceded to the players request," a report on the club's official website reads.

"On behalf of the Orlando Pirates family we would like to wish Isaac Chansa all the best at his new club."

In obituary style: "Isaac Chansa leave Orlando Pirates FC and South Africa with 6 gold medals in 24 months while others leave South Africa with a mere 1 gold medal from 24 months and sit on the bench in Germany from OTHER South African clubs" #Bosso Ke BUcs

Hahahahahahahahaahhaah.......hola my China !

This says a lot about the club he plays for. Exporting your best players to China of all places is not a good reflection on a team. I know some idiot will mention Drogba forgeting that the guy is going there to collect his pension money.

If Drogba can collect the pension money why cant chansa do so??

Bare in mind that his contract was coming to an end on the end of June so do the Maths and tell me who benefited here...

Consistancy at its best. I am sure while he was searching for his old lovers number in his Trousers(Ya mokotla) he found the numbers of an Agent who got Jerry Sikhosana a team.
