Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the departure of long-serving defender Eric Mathoho after a decorated 11-year spell with the Soweto Giants.
KickOff reported at the start of March that the 33-year-old centre-back was one of several stars at Naturena that had been deemed surplus to requirements after falling down the pecking order in head coach Arthur Zwane's preferred squad.

Mathoho's has also endured a season riddled with injuries, ultimately making just one appearance which also only lasted one minute - a cameo appearance against SuperSport United.
The defender's contract comes to an end in June, and Amakhosi have have decided against renewing it. Mathoho is understood to already have said his goodbyes to teammates and started talks with several suitors.

One of Kaizer Chiefs’ longest-serving players Mulomowandau Erick Mathoho will sadly leave the Club as we conclude the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season.
Mathoho, who is now 33, joined Chiefs in July 2012 as a 22-year-old from Bloemfontein Celtic, where he spent three seasons.
We wish ‘Tower’ well in the future. Vha tshimbile zwavhudi vhoMathoho.
