Lekoelea: Chiefs must give Pule money

Orlando Pirates legend Steve ‘Chippa’ Lekoelea says Kaizer Chiefs must not repeat the same mistake they did with Reneilwe Letsholonyane by allowing an important player like Hendrick Ekstein to leave.

The 28-year-old future with Amakhosi has been hanging in the balance as his contract renewal negotiations with the club have hit a deadlock.

‘Pule’ is currently playing the waiting game as his existing contract expires at the end of the season, and he is said to be unhappy with the money being offered by the club.

In almost a similar story in the year 2000, Lekoelea held former team Pirates to ransom demanding a close to R1-million signing-on fee plus a R30 000 monthly salary or that he be released on a free.

“Ekstein wants money, is that so? Let them give him money so he can continue with his performance,” Lekoelea tells KickOff.com.

“They must give him money because he is performing. Him and Chiefs must talk so he can continue playing there. They are treating him well there at Chiefs as you can also see they are struggling as it is. So if he leaves, their midfield will struggle. They must speak to him so he can stay.

“They must give him the money. They must not allow him to leave. This thing of statistics saying he created so many chances and so many goals is not working, they must look at what he does on the field. They must forget about the statistics, he is a good player and he’s still young and he will grow with this game.
