WILLARD Katsande was the notable name on Tuesday when Kaizer Chiefs announced players that the club has decided to release.
This saw the club ending an 11-year relationship with the midfielder who had joined the club from Ajax Cape Town in 2011.
During his spell at Amakhosi, Katsande made 326 appearances, which is the record of being the most capped foreign player at Chiefs.
In a social media post where he was thanking the club for everything over the years, the 35-year-old stated that Amakhosi club will always be in his heart. “It is with a heavy heart that I must leave my beloved Kaizer Chiefs family. I am honoured eternally grateful to the Chairman of the Club, Kaizer Motaung for granting me the opportunity to represent this great institution over the past 10 years,” said the note posted on his Instagram account.
“To the peace-loving fans of Kaizer Chiefs, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for your support and encouragement over the years. You have constantly been the 12th man lifting our spirits, during the good times and difficult phases.
“I trust that I represented the Badge and Brand with the respect and dignity it deserves. ‘Respect the Badge in front and the faithful will forever remember the name at the back’.
“I am blessed beyond imagination, having represented my childhood dream Club for over 320 games, lifted four trophies, participated in the Champions League. Kaizer Chiefs is my family and will always be in my heart.
“The journey continues and the next chapter of my life commences.”
