TS Galaxy boss Tim Sukazi has revealed the Erick Mathoho move to Kaizer Chiefs as the one that sticks out for him from his time as a football agent.

Prior to becoming a football club owner, Sukazi owned an agency company where he sealed a number of deals for top players with high-profile clubs.

Now, asked if there is any deal that stood out for him as an agent, Sukazi picked the Mathoho to Chiefs move in 2012.

At the time, Mathoho was on the books of Bloemfontein Celtic, and according to Sukazi, South Africa’s ‘Big Three’ – Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns – all wanted to sign him.

At 21, Mathoho was hot property, so much so, that Pirates captain, at the time, Lucky Lekgwathi, was ready to retire and make way for the youngster if he joined Bucs.

Of course, Mathoho would end up at Chiefs in what was a very unusual way as the centre-back was unveiled in absentia at Naturena.

Now, Sukazi said there is a lot of juicy stuff that happened before Mathoho actually signed for Chiefs in 2012, saying once he reveals them, some details would shake the stock market.

And it is for that reason Sukazi is tempted to write a book where he intends to lay it all bare.

“There is one particular move that sticks out. I don’t know if I can write a book or if I should write a book about it.”

“At some point, I thought that one really, I will write a book,” said Sukazi on DiskiTalk with Luyolo.

“The story of the move of Erick Mathoho from Bloemfontein Celtic to Kaizer Chiefs has never been told.

“There is a lot that happened behind the scenes. It’s an untold story and I know the story, probably I know the best of it.”

“There is a lot of things, a lot of juicy stuff man to shake the world. Probably some of it will shake the stock market. Yes, the JSE, if I would tell what really went down in Mathoho’s move.

“I’m telling you some share price will crash in the JSE. I’ve never told it but that was ‘THE MOVE’; Unbelievable. That move was extraordinary,” he revealed.

“The three South Africa powerhouses, football clubs, Chiefs, Pirates, Sundowns competing for his signature that was the first and the last time for a young central defender of 21-years-old.

“So, you can imagine there was a lot that went on, it was insane.”
