Although Chiefs were never credited with an interest in Haashim Domingo, who has now left Mamelodi Sundowns, their fans urging their club to sign him. In all fairness to the Chiefs fans, a player like Domingo seemed to be a perfect signing for Amakhosi. A player who is in his prime years, who offers an option as both a playmaker and box-to-box midfielder, as well as a wide option, all areas of the pitch the club lacked in last season, there were no signs that they were even considering roping in the player.

Reports came out earlier in the month that Domingo will not be renewing his contract with Sundowns, after the two parties failed to agree on fresh terms. Masandawana then wasted no time in roping up their replacement, immediately starting transfer talks with Stellenbosch FC for playmaker Junior Mendieta.

It was suggested that it was Sundowns’ crosstown rivals SuperSport United, who were interested in snapping up the signature of Domingo, but now according to SABC Sport, Chiefs actually shared a genuine interest in the player and were even offered the opportunity to sign him by his agent, before they opted to pursue the Raja Casablanca transfer on a two-year deal.

“It’s true, Chiefs were keen – but we are still waiting for Kaizer [Motaung] Jnr, I think he lost my number or perhaps it has to do with reports they are waiting to appoint a new coach,” Domingo’s agent Lance Davids.

Now this will undoubtedly frustrate Chiefs fans who were begging their club to sign Domingo, knowing that the opportunity was there but their recruitment team failed to close the deal.
