Former Kaizer Chiefs star George Lebese has had his say over the rumours linking him with a surprise return to the Amakhosi.

However, speculation started to mount that the 31-year-old was set for a triumphant return to Naturena.
KickOFF.com reported that claims were made that Itumeleng Khune was even involved in the transfer negotiations.
However, Lebese refuted those claims and clarified his stance via social media.
The midfielder thanked the Chiefs faithful for their undying love even though he disappointed them previously.
Lebese emphasised that a return is not on the cards and confirmed his joy at his current club:
"I wasn’t asking for a return ,I thank KC for the opportunity but I’m @SwitchbacksFC happily now."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that George Lebese backed George Maluleka's decision to move to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Lebese confirmed that he chatted to his former teammate regarding the transfer to the Brazilians.
