Wits star not sitting waiting for Chiefs


Thabang Monare has finally shed some light on what he expects to happen to his career at the end of the 2019/20 season.

The 30-year-old Bidvest Wits midfielder has been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs for the past few seasons, and with his current deal at the Clever Boys only left with a one-year option, he says no negotiations have started yet between him and the club.

"Yes it does expire [in June next year] but remember there's still an option [for one more year]," Monare tells KickOff.com.

"It's not like I'm refusing to sit down with the club for negotiations. No negotiations have taken place so far. But me I'm happy here, ngi grand [I'm good] you see. I'm happy with how the team is growing and everything you see.

"So there's no need for them [Wits] to come to me every day to discuss and things like that. I'm very happy here with what I have, the team is a team that's competing. Like honestly it's that situation... other than people talking.

"As for me I'm grand, otherwise I was going to raise it. If I was not happy I was going to talk to them. Yes because I feel that's how life is supposed to be you know.

"So I'm happy here. Obviously we are going to talk here and there but I'm happy here. Honestly I wouldn't [mind retiring at Wits]."
