Kaizer Chiefs FC managing director Jessica Motaung, has confirmed that talks are still on-going between them as management and Njabulo Blom. Unfortunately, she said they will stay away if Blom’s demands are too high. She stated that talks have been made between parties behind the scenes.
“I think the development of our players is very key to us, the ones we develop ourselves,” she told journalists after a press conference with CAF president Partrice Motsepe.
“I think the changes, the structure in a way deals are done, agents come in and sometimes families don’t understand the business side of things.
“So I’ll be sad to lose Blom but if we lose him it won’t be without any effort from us. Kaizer Chiefs have worked very hard behind the scenes to make sure he’s part of our team.
“I think also, you have to accept if a player doesn’t want to be with you. Every player has to learn and explore the world.
“But for us, our home-grown talent is what we are proud of and what we’ll invest him.”
“I think what’s important it is a player that Arthur has invested in, the club has invested in,” she said.
“I think we have to have realistic demands. We have to have growth projection, not just initial projection.
“For me it’s looking at things realistically and if it doesn’t work out, we understand that maybe it was a long-term view because we don’t just see him as product just for now. We see him as part of the Chiefs family for a long time to come.
“Longevity takes time and investment. It’s not just a one-time view. That’s what players, agents, even parents need to think of long-term.”
“The negotiation are ongoing,” she added.
“As Chiefs people we are optimistic but we are also realistic. If the player chooses not to be with Chiefs, he chooses not to be with us.
“And we also realise if the deal is no longer good for us, we have to step away.
“But I think it will be a sad one, but there is a lesson for everyone.”
For starters you don’t own a player, he had a choice to indulge in any career but chose football, on top of that he would have chosen to join Orlando pirates or any other team but chose chiefs for the love he had for that team. At the end we never demand a thing from you but quality and delivery yet you still fail. We buy tickets, kit but still you fail to deliver the results. The boy has paid his dues, just give him what he wants ah mean it’s just 6 figures bearing in mind that he has ambitions beyond football and has bills to pay. Stop being stingy motaungs
