Kaizer Chiefs solves the crisis of the expiration of the contracts of its players before the Al-Ahly match by extending a month

The South African club Kaizer Chiefs continues to arrange its cards before playing the final of the African Champions League for the first time in its history on July 17 against Al-Ahly at the Mohammed V sports complex in Casablanca, Morocco, and the club began renewing the contracts of its players, which expired on June 30 last.

South African press reports revealed that 8 players from Kaizer Chiefs have already expired, and they are Itomiling Khouni, Khama Billiat, Lipu Manyama, Bernard Parker, Willard Katsandi, Bruce Pfoma, Ramalwe Mvahleli and Kjutsu Muliko.

The South African newspaper, The Citizen, said that the Kaizer Chiefs administration renewed Bernard Parker's contract for one month, to play the final match, after which a new contract is agreed upon, or the player will leave for free.

The report confirmed that the club will extend the contracts of all its players whose contracts have expired in the same way, and all players will receive new deals, which means either an extension for a year or more, or the signing of a short-term contract for a period of one month, provided that each player is extended for a month free and can join any other club. Free after the end of the Champions League and before the transfer market closes for the new season.

Parker's agent confirmed that he has signed a one-month extension and will meet with the club again after the final.

A Kaizer Chiefs source said that the players will have the option of rejecting any new deal offered by the club, but it is difficult to find a reason to do so, as they are heading to play the biggest and most important club match on the continent.

The source added, “I think a lot of players will continue the extension for a year, and some for a month.”

He continued, "It is the player's dream to play in the Champions League final, and it would be short-sighted not to sign a new contract. I think even those who were offered one month would also agree."
