Former Kaizer Chiefs skipper closing in on new club – report

Former Kaizer Chiefs skipper Ramahlwe Mphahlele is reported to be close to finding a new club just over a month after parting ways with the Soweto giants.

Mphahlele has been training with AmaZulu in an attempt to earn a contract, and he featured for them in last week’s KZN Premier’s Cup.

The 32-year-old moved to Usuthu after a short trial stint with SuperSport United who, at the time, made it clear that the right-back was only keeping fit.

Mphahlele would then move to the KwaZulu-Natal province after Brandon Truter agreed to have a closer look at him.

Now, according to Soccer Laduma, Mphahlele has entered into contract negotiations with AmaZulu, who appear to have liked what they have seen in the veteran defender.

On Wednesday night, AmaZulu president told reporters that he would leave the decision to either sign or reject Mphahlele to coach Truter.

“I know we have two players on assessment – Mzwanele Mahashe and Ramahlwe Mphahlele. We will sit down with the coach, and he will then tell me the way forward. So, for now, I can’t say anything,” said Zungu.

What’s obvious, though, is that AmaZulu need an experienced utility defender to fill the void left by Kgotso Moleko who was released in June.

As things stand, Usuthu have Thembela Sikhakhane and Mbongeni Gumede as their right full-backs but having Mphahlele in the mix could prove beneficial.

And that’s because of Mphahlele’s versatility to be able to play as a right-back, right wing-back and as a centre-back.
