“I am happy at finally renewing my contract with the club,” Katsande told the club’s website.

“Since day one I have been happy here, and the club has taken good care of me whether playing or not playing. Deep down I always knew this is what I wanted because even though there were offers elsewhere I knew this is the place for me. I am all about leaving a legacy after my playing career and this massive club offers me that.

“Obviously, my duty is to try and help the team win games, and that alone will never change because Chiefs is a big club that is used to winning. All this success I have been blessed with over the last couple of years has been made possible by my hard work here, and it’s all on me now to repay the confidence the club has shown in me with good performances and all out commitment when given a chance to play.”

As reported by Phakaaathi, Sundowns were said to be keeping close eye on Katsande’s situation with Chiefs, hoping to snatch the midfielder from Amakhosi.

Chiefs, however, have moved quickly to tie down Katsande to a three-year contract.
