Molangoane is wanted by Chiefs - who he has already trained with during pre-season after agreeing to a pre-contract with them as a free agent late last term – but Chippa are insisting on that he remains under contract with them for another two years.
The situation is now threatening to get messy as Molangoane has told Chiefs that he is a free agent and Amakhosi are sticking with that route rather than having to buy him from Chippa, where he has been playing for the past two years.
The matter will now be settled via the boardroom with Molangoane having turned to the PSL DRC in his bid to secure his release from the Port Elizabeth club.
Molangoane has not trained with Chippa since pre-season after he was chased away from camp prior to last campaign’s season-ending game against Chiefs after it emerged that he had signed a pre-contract with the very same Amakhosi.
Chippa coach Dan Malesela has also already indicated that the 28-year-old is not in his plans anymore as he prefers to work with players who want to be at the club.
Molangoane is now keeping fit with the academy where he spent time just prior to breaking into the professional ranks seven years ago.
Through his actions he has made it known that he is not keen on returning to Chippa and is disputing the contract the Chilli Boys say he has with them.
Chippa still insist he is their player.
“The boy belongs to Chippa and has two years left on his contract with the club. He is still not training with the club and we respect him so much that we hope this issue will be resolved soon. Those that want him must engage us for talks,” says Peter Koutroulis, the Chippa CEO.
