Kaizer Chiefs hit back in 'slave wages' row

Kaizer Chiefs have argued that goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma agreed to a development contract at the club, in response to criticism in the local media for the player's monthly R5,000 (US$350) salary.

Chiefs did not deny the figures quoted in the media, which equate to just US$75 per week, prompting the South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) to call for a minimum wage in the South African Premier Soccer League.

However, they claim that the 22-year-old agreed to the deal when he signed a development...

Komphela blames a number of factors for Chiefs' failings

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says a mixture of injuries, suspensions, fatigue and plain old bad luck cost Kaizer Chiefs this past season, but believes they were an improved side compared to his first campaign in charge.

It has placed the pressure on Komphela to deliver for a club that has never gone three campaigns...

The completion of the 2016/17 league season in South Africa means the match-ups in the quarterfinals of the lucrative MTN8 competition in the next campaign are now known.

The MTN8 is the first piece of silverware on offer in the 2017/18 season and comes with a hefty R8-million (approximately US$600,000) first prize, a fortune considering the league winners over a 30-game season win just R2-million more than that.

KweséESPN understands that the MTN8 quarterfinals will take place on the weekend...

The South African Premiership came to a conclusion on Saturday, bringing the curtain down on a stop-start season that has been one of the best in recent times in terms of drama and excitement.

The last few years have felt like a procession at the top and bottom of the league table, but this year there were still 12 teams fighting for something going into the final day, even though Bidvest Wits had already been crowned champions.

KweséESPN sums up the campaign with our best and worst of the...
