Chiefs set to offload experienced midfielder

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Cole Alexander is set to leave the club following a two year stint.

The 33-year-old was signed in July 2021, but struggled to get game time especially under Arthur Zwane. Last season, Alexander only played a handful of games due to injury that kept him out for months.

He returned to action in April this year but hardly made a difference as Chiefs finished fifth in the DStv Premiership.

In his first season, the former Bidvest Wits player made over 20 appearance for the Glamour Boys under then coach Stuart Baxter but since the British left the club, the midfielder has starved for game time under the new leadership.

Cole has also represented Bafana Bafana six times scoring once between 2015 and 2017.

Kaizer Chiefs set to release more players

Another player set to leave Amakhosi is Austin Dube. Both Dube and Alexander still have a year remaining of their initial deals, but reports suggests that the duo could be offloaded earlier than expected.

Chiefs have already announced the departure of veteran centre back Erick Mathoho as well as Siyabonga Ngezana and Phathutshedzo Nange.

“Yes Mazola you are correct, Austin hasn’t been part of the group that started training this week,” said Michaels.

“It’s the unfortunate side of football but it’s a reality of the game.”

Chiefs are yet to comment on the future of the two players.
