Chiefs confirm Mashaba assessment

Chiefs have confirmed reports that Mashaba is currently training at Naturena with a view to earning a move, as they look to bolster their defence ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The 29-year-old left-back is currently a free agent after being released from Sundowns in September last year, thus leading to Amakhosi first wanting to assess his fitness before offering him a deal.

“We have ‘Mzi‘ with us for training while the technical team have a look at him,” confirmed football manager Bobby Motaung on his club’s website.

“We will see how it goes and a final decision on him will be made in due course. We are looking at bolstering the left side of our play.

“We know what he can offer but he has been out of action for a while and with our new coach [Giovanni Solinas] also coming in, we want to make informed decisions before finalising anything.”
