Kaizer Chiefs head coach Giovanni Solinas has refused to comment or talk about transfer marker speculations or to say anything about players he hoped to be bringing into the club or players which would be leaving the club.
Solinas said he was not permitted to speak about speculation and media reports regarding possible player movements to and from the club. He said is focus remained on the players which currently formed a part of his squad.
Solinas refused to be drawn into reports about the imminent departure of Kaizer Chiefs legend Siphiwe Tshabalala and only said that the player had been at training on Thursday.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Kaizer Chiefs have made a raft of signings in recent weeks and have confirmed ongoing talks with Godfrey Walusimbi but beyond that have remained mum on how many additional players it was targeting.
Kickoff.co.za reported that the club signed Khama Billiat, Andriamirado Andrianarimanana and Virgil Vries during the pre-season before Solinas had been appointed.
This relative lack of movement and reports which indicated that Bafana star Andile Jali refused a deal with the club because at the time no coach had been appointed led to many fans becoming frustrated with the club.
Recent arrivals at the club have been led by Solinas and show that he is serious about bolstering the side’s defensive capabilities.
Solinas joked during a press conference that the media were trying to land him in hot water with the club’s management by pressing the issue of transfers after he had already refused to comment.
