Football agent Tim Sukazi says the claims that the players he represents are selected ahead of others are not true.

Sukazi, who represents Steve Komphela, dismissed reports suggesting the players that are under his management are to blame for Chiefs’ form.

The football agent says he didn’t have a hand in who made it into the squad, as it was not his job to teach Komphela how to coach.

“People don’t know what they are talking about. There is no truth in claims that a lot of players at Chiefs are represented by me and that they get selected ahead of other players,” Sukazi was quoted by Isolezwe.

“If I had a hand in selecting the starting lineup with Steve Komphela, then I would have him play all the players that I manage. I have a lot of players that I manage.

“Most of my players were on the bench, he used to have Mathoho on the bench. That alone proves that I didn’t have an influence.

“If I recall, Chiefs signed two players from me during Steve Komphela’s tenure, Zuma [Dumisani] and Ndulula [Bongani].”
