- Kaizer Chiefs are still after Sipho Mbule's signature and SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo is not happy
- Tembo says that the interest from other clubs in Mbule is causing a distraction in his camp and their football game
- Otherwise, coach Tembo says that he is happy with Mbule and Teboho Mokoena's attitude towards their training
Kaizer Chiefs have been heavily linked with Sipho Mbule and SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo is not impressed. There has been transfer speculation about Mbule and Teboho Mokoena since last season and Tembo believes this hindered their chances of playing properly.
Last season, the Tshwane club finished fifth in the DStv Premiership, five points behind third-placed Orlando Pirates, who secured the league's last CAF tournament spot.
"I think it started around January and really destabilised us. Because players are also human beings. When people are talking about them they are bound to lose focus and concentration and their game sometimes does suffer," said Tembo, according to SowetanLIVE.

Tembo also said that he would reassure the players if things were to change. According to the CEO of the club, no official offers have been put on the table so there's no need to worry.
The South African reports that the coach is happy with Mbule and Mokoena's performances during training despite the interest from Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns.
“They know that they have to refocus and start doing well again, otherwise you get forgotten very quickly in this game. They are focused. I’m quite happy about their attitude towards training," said Tembo.
