    What Kaizer Chiefs did to Willard Katsande was wrong

    Amakhosi parted ways with the defensive midfielder last week putting an end to Katsande’s 10-year illustrious career at the Soweto-based giants. Robson Sharuko, The Herald columnist has said the way Kaizer Chiefs treated Zimbabwean international Willard ‘Salt and Vinegar’ Katsande was wrong considering his hero status.

    Sharuko believes Katsande still has a lot to offer and Kaizer Chiefs should have kept him for that if not for his hero status. He said: He gave everything to serve the Amakhosi, winning two league titles in 2013 and 2014, the Nedbank Cup in 2013, the MTN8 in 2014, and helping them reach the final of the CAF Champions League for the first time in their history.

    It’s an open secret Katsande didn’t want to leave Chiefs this season when he was called into the club’s offices and told that their 10-year relationship was over. He is right to believe he still had a year or so at which he could play at the level expected of a Chiefs player, and he is not wrong.

    After all, how do the club’s bosses suddenly believe someone who was good enough to start against Al Ahly a few weeks ago,can now be deemed not good enough to play for them, against Chippa United, the world’s most chaotic football club?

    He added that it is beyond his reasoning that Katsande, a defensive midfielder was released when he cored better than Bernard Parker, a striker. Sharuko added:

    If Katsande, as a defensive midfielder, scored more goals than Parker in the past three seasons, what is it, which the Amakhosi bosses can point out at, to suggest the Zimbabwean came short, to merit their sudden divorce?

    And, Parker did well, to merit an extension of his contract? Disappointingly, Katsande wants to give an impression he is okay with everything that has happened to him in the past few weeks.

    For someone, who has never been known for selling opponents a dummy, it’s a very poor attempt. He wasn’t a charity case at Chiefs, he earned his place at the club, and the way he was treated was wrong.

    Katsande has since joined the newly promoted DStv Premier Soccer League side Sekhukhune on a two-year contract.
