Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says the current fuss surrounding the Premiership club’s transfer policy has been misinterpreted by supporters.

Following the acquisition of former Cape Town City forward Bhongolwethu Jayiya on a free transfer, fans on social media have expressed their concern over Amakhosi’s reluctance to spend money on transfers.

However, Komphela feels within the current market, a high transfer fee does not guarantee a quality player and cited Bayern Munich’s signing of Confederations Cup-winning midfielder Sebastian Rudy – after his contract with Hoffenheim expired.

“The transfer market is awkward, it needs an in-depth analysis,” Komphela told SuperSport.

“There is a player who played in the German team that won the Confederations Cup, (Sebastian Rudy), he’s going to Bayern (Munich) for free, it doesn’t mean that player isn’t good.

“The rules of the game and transfer marker dictate that the contract has come to an end, you can go for them.”
