JOHANNESBURG – Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has confirmed that Godfrey Walusimbi, the subject of accusations that Amakhosi are guilty of player tapping, is indeed in Naturena to negotiate a deal to join the Glamour Boys.
But Motaung was quick to refute reports that the South African giants are trying to lure the Ugandan defender away from his Kenyan club Gor Mahia without their permission.
Tapping is illegal according to Fifa rules.
News broke at the weekend that Walusimbi, who can play as a fullback or central defender, had gone AWOL and taken a flight to South Africa to meet with Chiefs officials over joining them before the close of the transfer window on August 31.
The Gor Mahia chairman even claimed in a statement that his Amakhosi counterpart had phoned him to apologise for getting off on the wrong foot.
