Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung insists his side followed the correct procedures when they signed Madagascar international striker Andriamirado Andrianarimanana from Fosa Juniors last month.
This, after Juniors revealed they are still awaiting contact from Chiefs over the transfer of their playmaker after the Soweto giants announced his captured soon after the Cosafa Cup.
"We are in discussion and blessings are there. We are in discussion of the acquisition, that's all," Motaung said during the launch of Maize Cup this weekend.
"It is normal when you sign a player, whether it is in Africa or Europe, if a player is free, some clubs - like in the continent - they come up with tactics of compensation which we know, we expected it, but we are not competing on that.
"It is normal, we are clubs, we must respect other clubs and we are in discussion with that."
Motaung added the player's agent didn't follow the right protocol, hence there are misunderstandings regarding the transfer of the player, but that they are speaking directly with the club.
He continued: "We are not in the fight, we are not hustlers, they just saw it happening in the media, unfortunately, the protocol was not followed by the agent to the federation. It was only in our hands.
"But we are engaging the club directly and we are in discussion. We didn't do this out of stealing, we expected it.
"Even if we had sign him now and got the clearance compensation will come it is normal."
