Katsande affirms commitment to Chiefs

Zimbabwean International, Willard Katsande has signalled his commitment to Kaizer Chiefs by signing a new three-year deal.

Katsande, who has enjoyed a dazzling career with Amakhosi since arriving at the club in 2011 from Ajax Cape Town, announced his decision of continuing his footballing stint with the Glamour Boys at the club yesterday.

The hard-tackling midfielder has handed a boost to Steve Komphela’s side, affirming that his ambitions can only be realised in a Chiefs jersey. Speaking at the club’s headquarters in Naturena with Kaizer Chiefs’ website, Katsande spoke of his delight at the new agreement.

“I am happy at finally renewing my contract with the club,” comments the delighted midfielder.

“Since day one I have been happy here, and the club has taken good care of me whether playing or not playing. Deep down I always knew this is what I wanted because even though there were offers elsewhere I knew this is the place for me. I am all about leaving a legacy after my playing career and this massive club offers me that.”

The midfielder’s form for the Gold and Black has seen him win numerous awards with the club, and recently saw him captaining his country at this year’s Africa Cup Nations competition in Gabon. He attributes his manifold success to his time at the club and pledges to continue working hard to repay the commitment shown in him.

“Obviously my duty is to try and help the team win games and that alone will never change because Chiefs is a big club that is used to winning. All this success I have been blessed with over the last couple of years has been made possible by my hard work here and it’s all on me now to repay the confidence the club has shown in me with good performances and all out commitment when given a chance to play.” concludes Katsande.
