Kaizer Chiefs’ sporting director, Kaizer Motaung Jr, has shed light on the issue of Andile Jali and Kamohelo Mokotjo.

Chiefs are reportedly looking for a defensive midfielder and have been linked with Jali. 

The former Orlando Pirates midfield grafter is on his way out of Mamelodi Sundowns. This comes after his relationship with the club is on the rocks following his suspension over alcohol.

Interestingly, former Kaizer Chiefs player Junior Khanye has previously said the club should break the bank to sign Jali. 


Motaung Jr, who oversees player transfers at the club, has since responded via Thabiso Mosia’s Radio 2000 show.

“He (Kamohelo Mokotjo) is a great player, just like Andile Jali, but it was never a player that we wanted,” he categorically stated.

“Coaches have their reasons, and it’s our goal to help them reach their targets. Andile Jali is a great player, and he was a player we were interested in when he came back from Europe, but the linking part now is where the confusion is. 

“In football, things happen, and at the time, he went to Sundowns, and that’s now history.”

Jali’s last game was a Nedbank Cup clash with Richards Bay on 7 February 2023; he hasn’t been in the squad ever since alleged reports in the media that he and Sipho Mbule arrived at training under the influence of alcohol. 

Mbule has been reintroduced into the team, but Jali is said to be on his way out of the club.

According to Andile Jali’s representatives, the issue was resolved, but he never returned to the Chloorkop training ground. 

Jali will be out of contract at Sundowns in July, and the player looks set to play his football elsewhere. 

Jali remains sidelined and has been linked to DStv Premiership clubs like AmaZulu, SuperSport United and Stellenbosch FC. 

Meanwhile, Mokotjo has started off life well at Sekhukhune United, making eight appearances so far. 

Sekhukhune coach Brandon Truter values the SuperSport United academy graduate who spent 14 years overseas.

Interestingly, Sekhukhune host Chiefs at the Peter Mokaba Stadium this weekend.
