George Maluleka's agent Sean Roberts has revealed that his client wasn't offered a contract extension to finish the season with Kaizer Chiefs.
Maluleka seems to have parted ways from the club after 6 years of service on bad terms after he signed a pre-contract at rivals Mamelodi Sundowns. The 31-year-old midfielder was unveiled by Mamelodi Sundowns after signing a three-year deal following his departure from the Amakhosi before the completion of the season.
"George is now a Sundowns player. A contract extension was not offered to him by Chiefs to finish the season," said Roberts on SA FM.
"That came as a surprise to him and a lot of people in the football fraternity. George would have loved to have finished the season with Chiefs. I think he added a lot of value to the club. We have seen this season that George has grown tremendously and at 31 he is playing some of the best football of his life.
"George is extremely grateful to the Kaizer Chiefs family for what they offered him and what they've done together. It's a sad day for George and the Chiefs family, but we just want to say thanks to Chiefs for what they have done for him but now we look forward."
