Agent Ntobatsi Masegela said it does not make sense for his client Keletso Makgalwa to join Kaizer Chiefs while they are still waiting to hire a new coach.

The 27-year-old scored 11 goals for NFD side Upington City, which has caught the attention of Chiefs, who are also linked with Serbian-based attacker Luther Singh.

Speaking to KickOff, Ntobatsi confirmed Makgalwa will not be joining the side looking to rebuild their squad ahead of next season.

The agent said:

"How can I allow Keletso to go? No one even knows who's going to coach the club (next season). So, you need to understand who is going to coach the club before you let the player go. You need to understand the project that you're going into."

Amakhosi fans do not want Makgalwa

Chiefs supporters took to social media, saying Makgalwa does not have the quality to play for the Soweto club, and they are happy the striker is no longer linked.

Ayla Phil is frustrated:

"Management of KC, this is your problem. You need to stop signing players before the arrival of a coach or without the coach's concern."
