Akpeyi is no longer leaving South Africa

Published

on

He had been widely reported to be on his way to France in a big money move.

But that has all faded and now Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper and Nigerian international Daniel Akpeyi is stuck in South Africa.

Akpeyi is currently the Chiefs number one goalkeeper and he is now targeting a new long term deal with the Soweto giants.

According to Soccer Laduma, Akpeyi is no longer looking at going overseas as he seeks to cement his legendary status at Amakhosi.

His current contract ends in June 2022 and he is desperate to extend it before 2022 comes as it would give him a better contract.

 

He is currently aged 34 and with the Covid-19 pandemic being experienced worldwide, his chances of an overseas move are very slim.

According to a source that spoke to Soccer Laduma, Akpeyi is happy at Chiefs and would consider hanging up his boots at the club.

“Daniel is happy at Kaizer Chiefs. He is doing well at the club and thats all a player could ask for. Chiefs is a big club and he is happy to be part of their set up and plans,” said the source.

Akpeyi has already played seven of Chiefs 13 games so far this season.

Kaizer Chiefs want to FIRE Gavin Hunt

Gavin Hunt could be heading for the exit door at Kaizer Chiefs come the end of the season and a familiar face has been tipped to replace him.

Kaizer Chiefs are currently in 10th place on the DStv Premiership log standings with just four games to go and the club are reportedly looking at getting rid of Gavin Hunt!

Hunt joined the Amakhosi with much expectancy at the beginning of the season in a blockbuster move however the Four-time league winning coach has found the going tough at Naturena.

Many expected the former Bidvest Wits coach to guide Kaizer Chiefs to the league title following last season’s final day heartbreak but six months in and the Amakhosi have regressed in shocking fashion.

Gavin Hunt’s side have earned just six league wins in 26 matches meaning they’ve dropped points on 20 occasions since the beginning of the season.

While it must be mentioned that Kaizer Chiefs made history by first qualifying for the CAF Champions League group stages and then following it up with a string of incredible performances that saw them qualify for the knockout stages as well.

Their domestic form has been a shadow of their continental form and a coaching replacement is on the cards at the end of the season according to South African heavyweight soccer journalist Velile Mnyandu.

“Kaizer Chiefs could be in for their fifth coaching change in the space of just three years, with a return of Stuart Baxter being touted at Naturena.” IdiskiTimes reported.

Stuart Baxter is currently unemployed after he was sacked in controversial fashion at Indian club Odisha FC last year. The 67-year-old guiding the Amakhosi to two league titles in three years at the club.

He further went on to lift the Nedbank Cup and MTN8 with Kaizer Chiefs and will undoubtedly be at the top of Kaizer Motaung’s shortlist should Gavin Hunt be axed.

Ex-Springboks Coach Rassie Erasmus Responds to Unfair Criticism Online

Coach rassie

Former Springboks coach Rassie Erasmus has hit back at claims that the reigning World Cup champions are not worthy. This comes after a statement that was made by an article through Rugby Pass, alleging that the current Springboks side is not the best.

Erasmus wrote on Twitter: “A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinion of a sheep.” With the Boks set to return to action since winning the global showpiece in Japan back in 2019, they are will face Georgia in July this year.

Penned by Ben Smith (not the former All Blacks fullback of the same name), Erasmus has also attracted some views based on his tweet.

It is reported that some will believe the veteran manager should have responded to the article directly and not just use a social media application. In November 2018, Erasmus similarly made public his opinion when he felt the Boks had been wronged after they had controversially lost 12-11 to England at Twickenham. Moreover, it is reported that Smith’s piece is unfairly critical of the South African national pride.

The writer also suggested that the Boks were less than courageous by not participating in last year’s Rugby Championship that was held in a bio bubble in Australia and featured the Wallabies, All Blacks and the Pumas.

News reported that the Rugby World Cup will be taking place in France in 2023, where the Springboks will defend their title as Rugby World Cup champions and try and make history by winning the competition for the fourth time.

The opening match will feature two rugby giants, France and New Zealand in Paris at the Stade de France stadium. The schedule looks good for the Springboks who will be taking on Scotland in their first match. South Africa will play in Pool B along with Ireland, Scotland, Asia/Pacific 1, and Europe 2.
