Moleko had overseas offers
New Kaizer Chiefs recruit Kgotso Moleko says he only ever wanted to sign for AmaKhosi, despite two offers from abroad.
The right-back left Bloemfontein Celtic at the end of last season as a free agent and had opportunities in Europe, but opted instead to move to Naturena.
“I had two options overseas on but when an opportunity to join Chiefs availed itself I could not turn it down. I want to establish myself at Chiefs before I can think of furthering my career in Europe,” Moleko told his club’s website.
“We all know that Kaizer Chiefs is an ambitious club and one can see with the type of players that the team signed this season. The fans are expecting trophies following a season where the team did not win a cup. I have not won a trophy yet in my career and I see joining Chiefs as an opportunity for me to win things.
“It is of course not about me but the team. I am going to learn as much as I can from the senior players but it is also my intention to write my name in the history books of this club. This calls for hard work and I have no doubt that if I keep my feet on the ground and listen to those who were there before me I will achieve my goals in life.”
Moleko will face tough competition for the right-back berth when veteran Jimmy Tau returns from injury, while Bafana Bafana international Siboniso Gaxa can also be used in that position.
