I was too comfortable at United – Khumalo

Sibusiso Khumalo says he moved to Kaizer Chiefs from SuperSport United because he needed a challenge.

Khumalo was unveiled as a Chiefs player at a press conference on Monday morning, after the left-back was signed to Chiefs in a swap deal also involving Keegan Ritchie.

The former United man said his move to the Soweto giants was not financially motivated, as he was looking for a challenge and a chance to compete.

“I think for me it was more about competing against the best rather than money, I felt I was too comfortable at United,” said the defender.

“I wanted to make a big move, compete and get a new challenge, because fighting for a place with Masilela is not going to be easy.”

“He played in Europe and to compete with him is something I’m looking forward to.”
