AmaZulu boss adamant Chiefs jumped the gun on Sithebe

AmaZulu FC boss Sandile Zungu is said to have critical evidence that Kaizer Chiefs spoke to Siyethemba Sithebe or his representatives earlier than they expected.

Phakaaathi has previously reported that Zungu is considering filing a lawsuit against Amakhosi for breaking the rules.

Under the transfer rules, a player may only talk to a team of his choice in the last six months of his contract without permission from his current club. But Zungu claimed that Chiefs had spoken to Zungu much earlier, which is why when they tried to talk to him about an extension, they made ridiculous demands.

“He has the proof. He is now only thinking about his decision on the matter. It’s not an easy decision because if Chiefs are found guilty it will have a ripple effect as they have already been given a suspended sentence,” a source said.

Meanwhile, Sithebe looks like he’s frozen at AmaZulu after his failed move to Chiefs.

The 29-year-old has yet to play for AmaZulu since the failed move, with AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy recently confirming to the media that Sithebe is not available for selection.

“Obviously, when you have quality players and they don’t play, you see a void,” McCarthy told media recently.

“The players come to train and we select them based on how they train, their work ethic and things like that.

“Sithebe was not available and it is clearly a discussion the club had with myself and the technical team about the situation, so I have no control over it. I can only select who I have at my disposal and unfortunately I don’t have him at my disposal, so I cannot place a player that I cannot select.”
