PSL duo keen on Paez

Soccer Laduma - - Front Page -

Hav­ing not played for Kaizer Chiefs in over a month, and re­cently been left out of the club’s CAF Con­fed­er­a­tion Cup squad al­to­gether, it looks as though the writ­ing could be on the wall for Gus­tavo Paez at Na­turena.

Paez has 10 goals in 52 games since join­ing the Glam­our Boys in Jan­uary 2017, with the for­ward pen­ning a two-and-a-half-year deal at the club at the time, a deal that is set to ex­pire at the end of the 2018/19 cam­paign.

The 28-year-old has fallen rapidly down the peck­ing or­der of late, and has been given just four starts in all com­pe­ti­tions this sea­son, and there is talk that that his fu­ture is up in the air as we head closer to­wards 2019.

Af­ter be­ing in­volved in a bust-up with Soli­nas dur­ing the Macufe Cup, the Venezue­lan went on to apol­o­gise for his role in the fall­ing out, telling the club’s of­fi­cial web­site, “There was no bad in­tent on my part as I have a great re­la­tion­ship with the coach. It was a case of mis­un­der­stand­ing.

“I ad­mit that it looked bad and for that rea­son, I apol­o­gise sin­cerely to the Chair­man, the club, my team­mates, spon­sors, sup­port­ers and all the stake­hold­ers for this un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent.”

Paez played the fol­low­ing game – against Black Leop­ards – af­ter the in­ci­dent, sug­gest­ing that the mat­ter had been put to bed, how­ever he hasn’t played a sin­gle minute since then and there is talk that he may be on his way out ei­ther in Jan­uary or when his deal ex­pires. p

Ac­cord­ing to Siya sources, both b Su­perS­port United and Cape Town City are tracking he player and could jump aat the op­por­tu­nity of sign­ing him on a pre-con­tract in Jan­uary, once he en­ters into the last six months of his deal.

Ac­cord­ing to the source, Su­perS­port are lead­ing the race for the 28-year-old and, as it stands, he could join them on a free at the end of the cur­rent cam­paign.

Mamelodi Sun­downs were heav­ily linked to Paez last year, though it’s un­likely that they will reignite their in­ter­est, con­sid­er­ing the amount of for­eign­ers they have on their books.
