Bobby Motaung gets hot “klap” from female fan


Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung got a hot klap across the face from a female fan he tried to seduce at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday, where his team played to a 1-1 draw with Maritzburg United.

A source said Bobby upset the woman when he sent a waiter to offer her some money, which the woman – who is a practising doctor took offence to and got up to confront the Chiefs manager.

“Things got ugly. Bobby has been trying his luck with the woman and decided to seduce her with money. She got up and threw the money at him before she slapped him across the face,” said the source who was at the VIP section on the night.

Motaung hits back at Safpu over transfers

Kaizer Chiefs team manager Bobby Motaung has furiously refuted claims that the club did not engage players before terminating their contracts en masse this week.

“No player can say they were not consulted,” Motaung said yesterday, after Sowetan reported some Chiefs players had asked the SA Football Players Union to intervene after they were abruptly sacked on Tuesday.

“Some players signed settlement agreements, others have termination letters,” he added.

But Motaung would not elaborate on Siboniso Gaxa’s situation after the defender was listed among players whose contracts were not renewed, even though the club announced last year he had a new two-year deal.

“If Pa (Gaxa) has a problem, he must come to us at the (Chiefs) Village. We have an open-door policy and we can explain everything. I’m not going to comment on what happened last year.”

Sowetan has been told Gaxa was stunned to learn he had no new deal, after he had signed an extension last year. A source close to the player said the rightback found out via a TV news bulletin that he was no longer wanted at Naturena. “He was watching the news and, to his surprise, his name was on the list of players leaving,” said the source, who refused to be named for legal reasons.

“Gaxa assumed the contract he signed last year was sufficient, but it now appears Chiefs didn’t ratify it, but they didn’t tell him either. Otherwise he could have signed a pre-contract with anyone from January.”

But Motaung insisted Gaxa had been told his services would not be required. “We are not fighting against anyone. If he’s unsure of anything, he knows where to go. I will not engage him via the media.”

The Chiefs manager also lashed Safpu. “I don’t know why they get involved now. When we were losing games they never told the players to up their game. Now that we are acting after a poor performance, they have something to say. Where have they been all along?”

Meanwhile, Tim Sukazi, who represents Bongani Ndulula, said Chiefs’ decision to let go of his player did not come as a surprise.

“He was not getting game time, so we engaged Chiefs months ago over his release. I’m happy that they agreed to put him on transfer,” he said.bobby
