Mmodi: I felt “down” about not getting the Kaizer Chiefs transfer.


The 29-year-old was said to be a transfer target for Amakhosi, but no deal was made. Pule Mmodi, a midfielder for Golden Arrows, has talked about his failed move to Kaizer Chiefs and how he felt when it didn’t work out.

It was said that Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane wanted to sign the Bafana Bafana linkman as part of his plan to rebuild the team, but Amakhosi decided not to sign him.
He is still with Arrows after joining them from Uthogathi in the National First Division in 2020. This is his third season with the team.

“I was never disturbed. Since the move didn’t happen, I told myself I had to work hard because I couldn’t do anything else,” Mmodi told iDiski Times.


“But at first I was sad, but I couldn’t do anything about it.”


Mmodi has been playing well this season. He has scored four goals and set up one in eight Premier Soccer League games.


Peter Shalulile of Mamelodi Sundowns, who plays as a striker, has scored two more goals than him.


“I feel happy. I’ve been working hard, and I’ll keep doing so. So what is happening now is very encouraging,” Mmodi said.


Even though he has scored four goals in eight games, that is the same number he scored in all 28 league games last season.


He has scored in Arrows’ last four games, which is impressive. This makes him their top scorer and puts him ahead of Knox Mutizwa, who has been Abafana Bes’thende’s reliable gunman in recent years.


The PSL transfer window closes on Thursday, and Mmodi’s good play could make Chiefs change their minds about him.


So far, he has done better than the midfielders Siyethemba Sithebe, Yusuf Maart, Lehlogonolo Matlou, and Kamohelo Mahlatsi, whom Zwane brought in during the current transfer window.


It remains to be seen if Mmodi can keep up his good play as the Arrows get ready to play their first game after the Fifa international break against Cape Town City.
