Buyani Sali admits uncertainty over Chippa United future amid Cape Town City murmurs

Posted: 22 June 2017 Time: 17:04

Chippa United midfielder Buyani Sali has removed the cast on his leg but there remains uncertainty over his immediate playing future.

Sali sustained a fractured tibia in a league match against Kaizer Chiefs on April 15, which subsequently ruled him out for the rest of the season.

“I just removed the cast yesterday,” Sali tells “I am glad that I can now walk without the assistance of crutches but the doctors have told me that I need to take it easy for two weeks first before I start any activity.

"For now I am still here in Cape Town where I have been since I came back injured and I have just been focusing on the injury."

A solid shift in the middle of the park has meant the diminutive midfielder becomes a subject of interest elsewhere, with Cape Town City said to have already raised a hand of interest.

“Right now, what I know is that I signed a two-year contract with Chippa, which had an option. For now there is still the option hanging and I don’t know what is going to happen because this is all in the hands of the club," he explains.

"Look, people will always talk and there will always be stories created and, just like you are saying, I have also heard about the club [Cape Town City] that you are telling me about, but my contractual situation is as per what I have just told you.

"I think Chippa still want me and I am appreciative of the support that I have received from the club."

The 27-year-old had made 24 appearances prior to the injury he suffered this past season.
