Wits Cling To Chiefs & Pirates Target

Jabulani Shongwe Still Has A Year On His Bidvest Wits Contract

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 19, 2017 12:58 PM
His agent may have suggested that he was a free agent, but Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs target, Jabulani Shongwe, still has a year left at Bidvest Wits.
 
 
The 27-year-old didn’t play a single Absa Premiership game for the Clever Boys as they won the league in 2016/17 and is clearly not in Gavin Hunt’s plans for the club going forward.
 
Jazzman Mahlakgane, the player’s representative, told the Siya crew recently that Wits had told him that they will not be renewing his contract, suggesting that he will be available for any club to bring on board ahead of 2017/18.
 
Mahlakgane said at the time, “We met with the club and what they have done was to assure me that they will not renew or exercise their option on the player’s contract for the coming season.”
 
However, as reported in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, an official at Wits has now confirmed that Shongwe does still have one more year left on his contract at the club, meaning that any team interested in signing him would first have to come to an agreement with them. 
 
 
Shongwe could still leave Wits if a transfer fee or swap deal is agreed, however, Pirates and Chiefs will have to think again if they were hoping to land him on a free.

When KC and OP showed interest in Tau, Pitso immediately played him, look where he is now; maybe the same will happen to Shongwe. My gripe is that, why keep a player if you not playing him, even during the transfer window period. #WeGaveItAway

So Wits exercised their option on a player that is not in the coach's plan clearly this is to spite the 2 Soweto teams and while they are doing this the player is the one who suffering and his career is going down the drain he will never be the same player anymore.

Shongwe is 200% better than Manyisa. Even Cele just aluded to the fact that Manyisa is a ordinary player. Manyisa should be what Messi is to Barcelona & what CR7 is to Real Madrid. Manyisa has enjoyed his holiday & is time that he comes to terms that Pirates is a big club. Wearing an artmband & that jersey should come with a huge responsibility and results should speak volumes. This week's game is sold out & Im going to Durban hopefully to watch Manyisa, Gcaba, Sarr & Gabuza for the last time in Pirates jersey.
