Former Kaizer Chiefs star Pule Ekstein has been missing in action from AmaZulu’s squad this season.
The attacking midfielder made 10 appearances for Usuthu last season but there’s been no sign of him so far this season.
Ekstein joined the Kwa-Zulu Natal based side after spending two season’s abroad in Azerbaijan.
Prior to that, Ekstein rose to prominence during his initial stages at Kaizer Chiefs however he ultimately fizzled away before leaving the club in 2018. He spent five seasons at the Glamour Boys.
And now, a new report on Ekstein’s whereabouts has emerged….
Ex Kaizer Chiefs star sent to the stands at AmaZulu
“They are still AmaZulu players.” A FarPost report read regarding Pule Ekstein and Thabo Qalinge.
“They are just not training under the squad under coach Folz at the moment. That’s how it was when he joined the team.”
In other news, Chiefs legend Brian Baloyi believes the only way to make the PSL competitive again is to introduce Financial Fair Play rules.
Baloyi represented Chiefs for over a decade before joining rivals Rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in a blockbuster move in 2004.
He spent six seasons at the Brazilians before retiring as a true South African legend.
And now, the goalkeeper claims there’s only way to stop his former side from dominating local soccer and that’s through FFP.
Mamelodi Sundowns have won five league titles in a row with their most recent one coming in last season’s treble.
Baloyi calls for FFP in the PSL!
What FFP simply means is preventing teams from spending more than they earn.
Sundowns have dominated the Premier Soccer League but this hasn’t come cheap for the Brazilians.
And Baloyi believes the only way to return the league to a competitive playing field is to stop Sundowns from their lavish signings.
“My honest opinion is, there will never be anyone that will compete with Sundowns for as long as things are the way they are.” the Kaizer Chiefs legend said as quoted by Sowetan.
“Sundowns will keep on winning the league until something like what happened in England happens here.
“By the end of the first round whoever is second and third, they (Sundowns) buy your players and cripple you and you are not going to compete. They have been doing it consistently.”
