Why SSU don't expect selling to Chiefs


SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews has responded to questions about four of his players who have been linked with Kaizer Chiefs.

Teboho Mokoena, Sipho Mbule, Bradley Grobler and Luke Fleurs have all been reported to be on Gavin Hunt's 'maybe' list for next season as the Amakhosi coach looks to bolster his squad.

Last year SuperSport tied down both Mokoena and Mbule to new deals, meaning any potential suitors will need to pay cash for their services.

"None of our players are for sale," Stan Matthews tells KickOff.com.

"Tebza and Mbule have buyout clauses which we hope will be activated at the Olympics... Bradley is always being linked somewhere but he remains a SuperSport United player.

"Kaizer Chiefs have not approached me for any player since the start of the season so I'm not expecting to sell any players to them."

Like in the current season, Matthews says they are not planning to go big in the transfer market next season unless there is an important player that needs to be replaced.

"No we are not... it's not a time to go big, it's a time to focus on the basics and build from within... we don't see better young talent out there than what we are grooming in-house," he explains.

"It will just take more time for the youngsters but this market will need time to recover from Covid... we will be more likely selling than buying, but if we do sell then we will for sure replace with experience."
