Sangweni's deal to Chiefs, off-on again!

[Posted 18 Aug 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Siyabonga Sangweni"s much talked about move to Chiefs is now back on the cards.

Bafana Bafana defender Siyabonga Sangweni has endured a frustrating period with revelation that the deal is back on the cards after initial reports in the South African press that the deal had been called off.

KickOff.com has reported for over a week on the on-off then on again deal.

Last week, Kick-Off.com reported that Chiefs had withdrawn their offer on Sangweni after the Manto Madlala owned Lamontville Golden Arrows reportedly increased the asking price for the Bafana defender. Reports at the time indicated that Arrows had increased the price from R4.5 million to R5million, which Kaizer Motaung's Glamour Boys were unhappy with, leading to them withdrawing interest in the player.

Reports in the local press yesterday reported a different story. Apparently Madala is not aware how the figure of R5 million reported in the press came about.

I only read about that figure in the newspapers. Nothing has changed as Bobby [Motaung] mentioned on a radio station; our negotiations are still on-going, Madala told KickOff.com yesterday.

The Arrows defender, who was part of Carlos Alberto Parreira's Bafana World Cup squad, may realise his child-hood dream of playing for Kaizer Chiefs if the on-going negotiations bear fruit.

Sangweni has been one of the best consistently performing players in the South African Premier Soccer League in the past two seasons. It was justified when Parreira called him into the Bafana final 23 squad for the World Cup between June 11 and July 11 this year.

During the high-profile friendly match against Ghana on 11 August, Sangweni was introduced as a second half substitute to replace Bafana captain Aaron Mokoena. 

The talented South African international defender has not only attracted the interest of Chiefs. Soweto giants Orlando Pirates were also eyeing the player, and only last week, Motaung and Pirates boss Irvin Khoza had to meet and agree not to pursue the same player. A tug-of-war for the services of Sangweni had apparently started between the two clubs. Pirates decided to withdraw their interest in the player.

The Arrows defender was also rumoured to be on his way to Israel for a trial stint with Maccabi Haifa in July this year, but the Israeli club's interest in the player cooled after they reportedly signed an Argentine defender.
