- Amazulu player Siyethemba Sithebe has been linked with a move away from the club despite management saying they know nothing about it
- Amazulu management claim they have not been approached by any clubs for the player let alone Kaizer Chiefs
- Some reports suggest that Sithebe has already signed for Chiefs, despite the transfer window only opening in January
Reports linking Amazulu player Siyethemba Sithebe with a move away from the club has left Usuthu management puzzled.
Several reports have linked the player with a move to Kaizer Chiefs with one even stating that Sithebe has already signed a contract with the Amakhosi.
AmaZulu president Sandile Zungu told Soccer Laduma that there has been no approach from Chiefs with regards to buying the player.
“Just think about it, how could he have signed or joined Kaizer Chiefs? It’s not permitted by FIFA rules – it would be in breach, and I don’t think Chiefs would want to do that. As far as I know, he is our player until further notice,” Zungu said.
Amazulu are looking to buy, not sell
Amazulu coach Benni McCarthy will hate to part with one of his star players as he looks to strengthen his side during the January transfer window.
Benni McCarthy is hoping to get in fresh faces into the squad as Amazulu look to have a better second half of the season, Sport24 reports.
"I'm desperate for new faces; I'm desperate for refreshments in the team and quality players," Benni said after the club's last game against Orlando Pirates.
