Phakaaathi has been reliably informed that former Kaizer Chiefs and Bidvest Wits defender Tefu Mashamaite is too expensive for the so-called smaller clubs in the Absa Premiership and the National First Division.
Mashamaite has been without a club since his departure from SuperSport United almost four months ago.
At 33, he is not fancied by the elite clubs, a source told the paper.
“Tefu is no longer a young man so that is why the big teams don’t want him. The smaller clubs want him for his experience but they cannot match his salary demands,” said the source.
