Kilambe angered by R700 000 price tag


Kilambe reveals that this is despite the fact that his contract was terminated during the off-season break and he was released after the club rendered his services surplus to requirements.

The burly striker openly admits that his contract at the time was only due to expire in June this year.

“What happened was that my contract was terminated and then I was released after being given a settlement. But I wasn’t given my clearance right away and only got it when I had returned home to Zambia. That’s when I discovered that any overseas club interested has to pay Chiefs.

“It was stated on my clearance that if an international club wants my services, then they have to pay Chiefs US$100 000. But how can this be when my contract was terminated. I got a settlement and won’t be getting a salary again and, strangely, Chiefs signed me off as a free agent.”

Speaking to from his Johannesburg home on the eve of his departure back to Zambia, the 29 year-old international said he remains confused.

“I will go back home and play for Zesco United so that I keep fit till June, then I can take up any opportunities that come my way. At least Zesco is a big team back home. They are the champions and will be playing in the Caf Champions League. I have been keeping fit at all times in the period that I have spent in Johannesburg.
