Katsande thrilled with new deal

The industrious midfielder, who joined Chiefs from Ajax Cape Town in 2011, yesterday penned a new three-year deal with the Soweto giants after lengthy contract talks.

“I am happy at finally renewing my contract with the club,” Katsande, 31, told the club's website.

“Since day one I have been happy here, and the club has taken good care of me whether playing or not playing. Deep down I always knew this is what I wanted because even though there were offers elsewhere I knew this is the place for me. I am all about leaving a legacy after my playing career and this massive club offers me that.”

The Zimbabwean added: “Obviously my duty is to try and help the team win games and that alone will never change because Chiefs is a big club that is used to winning. All this success I have been blessed with over the last couple of years has been made possible by my hard work here and it’s all on me now to repay the confidence the club has shown in me with good performances and all out commitment when given a chance to play.”
