Kaizer Chiefs’ football manager Bobby Motaung has challenged former Amakhosi defender Siboniso Gaxa to provide proof that he had signed a new contract with the club before he was released.

Gaxa was released by Chiefs at the end of last season, with the club stating that his contract had come to an end, but the former Bafana Bafana defender is contesting this, saying that he signed a new two-year contract with Chiefs.

Gaxa has since lodged a dispute with the Premier Soccer League Dispute Resolution Chamber on the matter. The hearing is set for August 18.

“If Gaxa has proof, he must show us he has a contract. He should come here. As far as we’re concerned we don’t have a contract with him. If Gaxa says that he has a contract, then he must present that contract to the DRC. We don’t have an issue or contract with him,” Motaung told the media during an open media day at Chiefs Village on Wednesday.

“If Gaxa has issues he must come here and discuss. This is not a pressing issue for us but if Gaxa wants to go to other platforms to address it, he’s allowed, it’s a democratic country.

“If Gaxa has something concrete, he must come here and show us this contract. When he goes to DRC he must also present that contract. As far as I’m concerned, the only contract we have with Gaxa is the one that’s expired, so we have no issue. He has an issue and he must go and present his case.”
