Prior to securing a contract with Radiomak Radom in Poland, Thabo Cele reveals that he was so close to joining Kaizer Chiefs.
South Africa u-23 midfielder shone in the Olympics in Tokyo two months ago and that resulted in Amakhosi showing interest in signing him as he was clubless.
The 24-year-old though signed a three-year deal with The Greens after the deal with Chiefs wasn’t successful.
According to Idiski Times, the KwaMashu born says he was also keen to joining the Soweto giants and could picture himself wearing gold and black.
“As time went on it became strong that Thabo Cele is coming to Chiefs, and even the fans started feeling it that Thabo Cele would be an interesting signing for the club,” Cele said as per iDiski Times.
“And then the negotiations started to manifest in reality, as I said it almost happened, because I was also interested in joining the club. But at the end it didn’t happen. “I was starting to see it happening because I was starting to ask myself questions, like how is it going be, the expectations, how am I going to cope, how I am going to react to certain things, certain pressures, the environment?
However, the KZN Academy graduate feels that being in Poland is still a good opportunity for his career. “Because the environment is different this side and that side, so yeah I was starting to think that this is happening, but I would not say I’m disappointed because I have this good opportunity here in Poland.
