Thabo Cele’s agent reveals why he did not join Kaizer Chiefs



The much-looked young international Thabo Cele has taken his way to Poland and his agency stated why his final destination was not the Kaizer Chiefs.

The midfielder has been a free agent for months now, following his departure from Cova da Piedades in the second division of Portugal at end of June – only several weeks before joining the Olympic Games coach David Notoane on his U23 side.

From the beginning, there were indications that Cele would look forward to staying in Europe in the future, but the return to his own country had not been totally rejected with genuine interest in the Prime Minister Soccer League.

His representative Hélio Martins, speaking exclusively with the Siya crew, said that the 24-year-old has agreed with RKS Radomiak in the top division in Poland, the club who had reserved its position to add Cele to its squad because of personal requests.

That seems worked out, though, as Cele has written on a two-year agreement with the option of extending it further for the next season.

That concludes the lengthy discussion of whether the KwaZulu-Natal academy student was possible to add the Kaizer Chiefs team to it.

Amakhosi, the Siya team stated before, was interested on Cele – and Maritzburg United, AmaZulu and even Orlando Pirates were keen to do so at some point in time.

But the Radomiak vision influenced his client, Martens added.

“The proposition of the Kaizer Chiefs did not go further,” he added, the agent, informing Soccer Laduma that the Glamor Boys did not take the issue any further and invited the player to Naturena.

“And so, Europe is going to have the future now. The passion of Radomiak and the idea of the club persuaded the player.

He will now seek to be invited back to the national squad of his country (Bafana Bafana), his principal goal.”
