Chiefs Target – They’ve Been Tracking Me For 2 Years

Following reports that Kaizer Chiefs are set to conclude the signing of Bafana Bafana’s centre-back Austin Dube, he has since confirmed that the Phefeni Glamour Boys have been following him for the past two years.

Amakhosi announced the signing of six new players last week, namely Brandon Peterson, Sifiso Hlanti, Njabulo Ngcobo, Sibusiso Mabiliso, Kgaogelo Sekgota and Phathutshedzo Nange.

The latter, who left Stellenbosch FC on a free transfer, had confirmed his move to Naturena before it was officially announced.

After Molefi Ntseki confirmed that more players will join the club and with reports in local media linking Austin Dube with a move from Richards Bay to Chiefs, the defender has confirmed to iDiski Times senior writer Velile Mnyandu that his new club have been scouting him for two years.

“Yeah since 2019 if I’m not mistaken, since 2019, it’s just that it had to take some time for it to happen,” he said in an exclusive interview in this week’s iDiski Times, which you can download for FREE here.

“I am, I am grateful to Richards Bay, to the chairman, mostly to coach Simo Dladla, you know, for believing in me and understanding my capabilities and stuff. I’m very grateful.”

Dube also says that he and his family have been supporting Chiefs since he was a kid, and his family had to pick sides when he faced Amakhosi with TS Galaxy in the 2019 Nedbank Cup final.

“Everyone at home they support it (Chiefs) and I mean like everyone at home,” he added.

“It was even difficult for them, they had to choose sides when we played in the Nedbank Final in 2019, they had to choose either they support me or to support their club, so it was difficult for them, seriously. 

“But it’s actually been my club since I was growing up.”

You can read the full exclusive interview with Dube, where he also chats about beating Chiefs in the 2019 Nedbank Cup final and his call up to Bafana Bafana, as well as lots of other hot content such as an interview with Pitso Mosimane, another exclusive with Arthur Zwane, Farouk Khan, Stanton Fredericks and Orlando Pirates’ new signing Monnapule Saleng in this week’s edition of iDiski Times, which you can DOWNLOAD BELOW FREE HERE!
