Newly-signed Radomiak midfielder Thabo Cele has told his side of the story on what led to his failed move to Kaizer Chiefs.
In an interview with SAFM on Thursday, Cele said he had no intentions of coming back to South Africa until Chiefs showed serious interest in him.
However, the proposed deal fell through after talks were opened between the two parties, Cele confirmed.
“I wasn’t really thinking about coming back home until there was serious interest from Kaizer Chiefs, but the negotiations fell through,” said Cele.
Cele said as a Chiefs fan who grew up in a family that supports the Soweto giants, he was keen on a move to Naturena so much so that he waited on them despite sitting on offers from Poland and Portugal.
“I’m a fan of Chiefs and even my family supports Chiefs. So, I was looking forward to it,” revealed Cele.
“I had an offer in Poland. There was interest from Portugal. I waited for the move to Chiefs to happen but it didn’t happen,” he said.
Cele said he still doesn’t know what led to Chiefs dragging their feet, and to show that he was ready, he had even started watching Amakhosi’s games.
“The club in Poland then came back with better communication. I’m not sure what happened with Chiefs. I was even watching their games. I was ready,” he added.
