Keegan Dolly is the highest earner at Kaizer Chiefs

Dolly's salary is confirmed in the tweet below:

Since joining Chiefs in 2021, Dolly has scored 12 goals in 49 appearances and twice in 15 caps for Bafana.

Chiefs will be looking to refresh their squad with a new coach and will target three Bafana players: Elias Mokwana, Sphephelo Sithole and Oswin Appollis.

Fans think Dolly should take a salary cut

Despite his limited appearances this season, Amakhosi fans believe Dolly can still be a star for the club, although they think the club should reconsider his high salary.

Yabanathi Dimane says the new coach should decide:

"We don't get to decide that; let the next coach decide, guys."

Innocent Chuma says Dolly must go:

"Dolly is the main reason for the division in our team with a high salary, which is not giving us any fruit, so he must go."

Malum TwentyFøur backs Dolly to stay:

"Hard worker Sithebe & talented Matlou. Dolly still has a lot to offer to the team."

Syabonga Mabaso says Dolly is a game changer:

"I'd keep Dolly. He's a game-changer. Besides the injuries that he is facing, when given a chance, he showcases himself."

Vusi Bembe says Dolly deserves another chance:

"Mmmm, Dolly can stay to balance when we need experience. Sthebe, I think, should also stay to be assessed by the new coach; I'm positive he's a good player."

Khethan Gift is a fan of Dolly:

"I wish they keep this one even though he hasn't offered anything this season due to his injuries, but I still believe if he's got a good coach that believes in him, he can do something."

Ronald Thabo says losing Dolly will cost Chiefs:

"Dolly must stay. We can't afford to lose him. He will go Sundowns and come back to hurt us."

Zola Saul says Dolly is a liability:

"Dolly is an expensive liability. Most of the time, he is out injured. But smiling all the way to the bank."

Vidge Mak thought Dolly had a new deal:

"Didn't Dolly agree to the salary cut, or was it just a rumour?"
