Xulu Snr: Siyanda is not happy at Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 13 April 2016 Time: 14:55

Christopher Xulu, the father of Kaizer Chiefs defender Siyanda, says his son is not happy with how things are going at the moment.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns player joined AmaKhosi at the start of the season after four years in Russia. He arrived with massive expectations and the assumption that he would be a perfect replacement for Tefu Mashamaite, but injuries and a lack of form meant that has not happened.

Chiefs coach Steve Komphela has tried a number of combinations at the back, with Erick Mathoho and Lorenzo Gordinho seemingly now the preferred one.

Siyanda is back in training after suffering concussion, but Xulu Snr admits things have not gone according to plan.

“What is happening currently is not good for him … not good at all,” Xulu Snr tells “I spoke to him yesterday before the match against Mpumalanga Black Aces and I could tell he was not happy, saying ‘I’m at home and the team is playing away’.

“He is also not coming forward with what the problem is. There is no problem with him and the coach, but I told him he must not give up; he should continue to fight and he will get his chance to play.

“He has faced these issues in football, but you have to continue to fight … there is no any other way.”

Xulu has only played five League matches and one cup match since his arrival.
