Mashego has been a key player thus far for City, with such key performances seeing the player being linked to a move to Chiefs.
Mashego a Bafana international
In fact, Chiefs will know all about Mashego having witnessed both his defensive and attacking work. The speedy wing back was one of the goal scorers in a 2-1 victory over Amakhosi at FNB Stadium. With the season that he has had, that has equally seemed to catch the attention of Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos. He has since found himself as a member of the national team and was originally called up to the squad that lost the first 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Morocco away in Rabat.

It had emerged on Monday that Chiefs had made an offer for Mashego, but it had also emerged that City had exercised their two-year extension on his contract. That then means that Amakhosi will have to folk out what would be expected to be a hefty transfer fee for the soon to be 24-year-old. The player himself has since fuelled the rumours with his latest comments that explain his affection to the Glamour Boys.
Explains love for Chiefs
“As I was growing up, I fell in love with Kaizer Chiefs because of my dad as he is a big fan of the club. So, I used to go to the stadium with him, supporting Chiefs. I started developing a love for the club and told myself that I would love to play for this team in the future because my dad is a big Chiefs fan; even today, he still supports the club. As much as there is that team you support, once you reach a particular stage, like now, it is about where you get the opportunity to play. Whether it is a good one or not, will I play or not, grow and all that. I want to leave a legacy,” Mashego said to Soccer-Laduma.

Mashego is undoubtedly a huge asset to City and it remains to be seen if Chiefs will still have enough in their budget to lure the player to Naturena, following all the protracted deals they’re said to be involved in.
