Sangweni faces uncertainty at Chippa

Premiership

Chippa United’s negotiations to extend the contract of Thamsanqa Sangweni continue to be stalled following weeks of negotiations.

Sangweni has been back at pre-season training with Chippa with the hope that his contract matters would be resolved to enable him to play on at the club.

He re-joined The Chilli Boys in February for his fourth spell after a stint in the eSwatini Premier League with Mbabane Highlanders.

According to word from a source, the negotiations have essentially reached a dead end.

"When he joined, he was offered a contract with an option. However, the option did not have numbers and what has since been happening is that the negotiations have been around the figures," says the source.

"So far there hasn’t been an agreement on those figures with his representatives not agreeing to what the club is offering. As it stands, the negotiations have reached a dead-end, though hope is that there might be a change because it is important the player continues playing football.

"His representatives feel he made enough of a contribution to be worthy of an improved contract."

The 32-year-old made 14 appearances since February, showing both quality and experience in midfield as Chippa went on to ultimately escape the drop via the playoffs.

He has played on the domestic scene for a dozen years starting out at AmaZulu before also turning out for Mamelodi Sundowns, Ajax Cape Town, Orlando Pirates, Maritzburg United and Richards Bay.
