Cheslyn Jampies has expressed his disappointment after he was let go by Sekhukhune United who opted not to extend his contract that will be running out at the end of June 2022. He says he felt “hard done” by the individuals that convinced the club’s management to not extend his stay.
Jampies told iDiski Times that he felt that his recently ended season’s performance was enough for the management to hand him the renewal of the contract. The former Jomo Cosmos man says he was initially promised that his contract was going to be renewed however, it all changed in the end.
“Yeah I feel hard done by, the way certain individuals have brainwashed management or club should I say,” the former Baroka defender told iDiski Times.
“It takes years to run a club the way they did, in the first round players were happy and happy players worked for you.
“Players that work hard get results and I was promised by the club that my contract would be renewed. But then I got a letter sent to my phone saying the club will not be renewing my contract. Three minutes later it was on the internet.
“It’s so sad, I laugh because of my pain. What do we teach our kids? I really wish the best to Sekhukhune United.
“I enjoyed my stay, thanks for the chance and I hope that the first round of 12 clean sheets and 32 points was enough. Mr Simon Malatji I’m grateful for the chance you gave me, you would always confide in me.”
Jampies says he would have loved to stay with Babina Noko who will be moving to Limpopo province next season. However, it’s clear that the left back wasn’t in the plans of their new coach Kaitano Tembo.
“I would have loved to stay but I’m also a businessman as I mentioned that what do I teach my kids, when no matter what you do it’s not enough, for some people to try to break you
“What Mr Malatji and his brothers and family had built over years and Coach Kaitano is a good man and this is the nature of this business.
“You won’t always have it your way but to him nothing but the best, to coach McDonald and Thabo Senong and coach Tembo.”
