Kaizer Chiefs academy stars in hot water, one released

Kaizer Chiefs are set to release DStv Diski Challenge defender Puso Dithejane. This was after he and other Diski players allegedly refused to perform as ball boys in the Carling Knockout Cup match against AmaZulu.

Dithejane released by Kaizer Chiefs

19-year-old Puso Dithejane has impressed at right-back and was one of six Chiefs DDC players to train with the first team in pre-season. According to intel received by iDiski Times, Dithejane was amongst a half dozen players who were supposed to be ball retrievers against Usuthu at FNB Stadium but they refused. Dithejane was reportedly at Naturena on Friday to collect his clearance package. Any club who wants to sign Dithejane must pay Chiefs a sum to the tune of R1.5 million according to a clause in that clearance deal.

Meanwhile, there’s also turbulence at the top level. Molefi Ntseki lost four of the last five Chiefs matches he presided over, most recently their Carling Knockout defeat to AmaZulu. New interim boss Cavin Johnson’s first game at the helm is away to in-form Golden Arrows. Can he steady the ship? The Glamour Boys face Arrows on Saturday 28 October at 15:30. Arrows have won three consecutive away games in the league, their joint-best run of that kind in history. Their tally of 17 points from the first eight games this season, according to OptaJabu, is their best start to a campaign in 15 years. Subsequently, this is a seriously tough start for Johnson at the helm.
