Mbule opens up on Chiefs move talk


SuperSport United star Sipho Mbule has become one of the most valued players in the PSL and his performances this season have attracted much interest.

Mbule is one of players linked with a move to bolster struggling Kaizer Chiefs and is believed to be on their list of transfer targets to be part of a new project to end six years of trophy drought.

However, the highly-rated 22-year-old would not come cheap as he recently signed a contract extension with Matsatsantsa.

SuperSport CEO Stan Matthews even told this website "whoever wants to come sniffing around must come with a big cheque book as big as their nostrils" in March last year.

The Free state-born star has now also laughed off the idea of joining the Soweto giants and instead reveals his plans to play in Europe and become a regular for the national team.

"No response [laughs]," Mbule tells KickOff.com after being asked about the Chiefs rumours.

"I want to win the league [with SuperSport United], then move overseas and be a regular at Bafana Bafana, that's my focus."

In his first two years in the top league Mbule was one of the youngsters that made a strong statement in the league alongside his childhood friend and teammate Teboho Mokoena.

The playmaker knows those two seasons were all about learning and introducing himself to the DStv Premiership, but now understands what he needs to do to achieve his goals.

"I need to focus on being a better player, create and score more goals for the team," he concludes.
