By Lehlohonolo Lehana.

Former Kaizer Chiefs captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele and left back Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya are the latest players to be released by Kaizer Chiefs. 

Mphahlele’s contract with Chiefs is set to come to an end this month, and the Soweto-based club has opted against keeping him.

“Kaizer Chiefs have opted to not extend Ramahlwe Mphahlele’s contract when it expires in June,” Chiefs said on Thursday.

"His leadership on and off the pitch saw him wear the captain's armband numerous times. Thank you 'Rama' and all the best in the future."

The 32-year-old defender has been with Chiefs for six years after he joined from Mamelodi Sundowns in 2016.

Ntiya-Ntiya joined Chiefs' development ranks before being promoted to the senior team in January 2018.

"Kaizer Chiefs and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya have come to a decision to part ways. The defender joined Chiefs’ development ranks before being promoted to the senior team in January 2018. Our well wishes to Siphosakhe for the future," they said of Ntiya-Ntiya.

On Monday evening Chiefs confirmed seven of their new players as they get closer to beginning their preseason training and preparations. 

Among those introduced on Monday are Kamohelo Mahlatsi, Lehlogonolo Matlou and Dillon Solomons from Swallows FC and Siyethemba Sithebe from AmaZulu.
