Kaizer Chiefs part ways with Ghana’s James Kotei

first_imgGhana’s James Kotei’s stay with South African PSL side, Kaiser Chiefs, has come to an end just six or so months after he signed for the team.The club announced on Tuesday that it had terminated Kotei’s contract by mutual consent.Kotei did not feature in coach Ernst Middendorp’s plans at all and he played only once in a Macufe Cup game against Bloemfontein Celtic.Kaizer Chiefs Football Manager, Bobby Motaung, told the team’s website that despite the high hopes that met Kotei’s arrival, the player and the team just could not get their relationship going and thus, the exit was needed.“We were happy when James joined us,” Chiefs’ Football Manager, Bobby Motaung says about Kotei’s departure. “Unfortunately, football has its own dynamics. James didn’t play and we felt that we had to split amicable.”Kotei also spoke on his time at Kaizer Chiefs and wished the club well in their pursuit for the PSL title.“I like to thank the club’s Chairman, Kaizer warm reception he gave me and also Bobby Motaung for the love and care he showed me.Even though I wasn’t successful at Kaizer Chiefs, the love and unity were there. I hugely admire the professionalism of the club. I really hope that Kaizer Chiefs will become champions this season.”Kotei joined Chiefs from Simba in Tanzania in 2019 and the expectations were that he would be key member of the team but that has not happened.It is unclear what the next step is for Kotei after leaving Kaizer Chiefs.last_img read more

MAJOR ANTI-WATER CHARGE MEETING TO BE HELD IN LETTERKENNY TONIGHT

first_imgCan’t Pay Won’t Pay will hold a meeting in Letterkenny tonight to discuss stepping up the campaign to boycott water charges in the New Year.Spokesperson Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig said we have had a very intense period of activity over the past weeks with a number of protests, including the 24 hour picket of Joe McHugh’s office.He said the group are also gearing up for a large presence at the December 10th protest outside Dail with buses leaving from West Donegal, Letterkenny and South Donegal. He said “The response has shown that the changes announced by the government have only served to show that the protests are working and have encouraged people to continue to keep up the pressure until the charges are completely withdrawn. But we are very clear that while the protests are very important they will not on their own bring about the end of the charges. Only a massive boycott of the charges next year will do that.“We are meeting on Wednesday to draw up plans to bring the boycott message to every corner of the county with proposals for a leaflet campaign, public meetings and local protests. Our message will be that we are winning this battle against a weakened government which now has one eye on the general election. If we continue to stand together by refusing to register with Irish Water and refusing to pay, then we will see the charging system fall into complete disarray. We believe that tens of thousands of people in Donegal will not pay. It just will not be possible to pursue them all. As always our meeting this week is open to all those who support the boycott and want to discuss how we can make it as successful as possible.”The Can’t Pay Won’t Pay meeting takes place tonight (WED) at 8pm in the Station House Hotel, Letterkenny.MAJOR ANTI-WATER CHARGE MEETING TO BE HELD IN LETTERKENNY TONIGHT was last modified: December 3rd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:letterkennywater chargeslast_img read more
