Teddy keen on seeing out Amakhosi contract

“This is one of the biggest teams in Africa and to be part of it is amazing… it’s one thing that is a privilege, but you I understand how football works. So in case of the decision to let me go, I won’t take it badly at all.’’

Kenyan international midfielder Anthony "Teddy" Akumu Agay has expressed his desire to see off his contract at South African giants Kaizer Chiefs. 

Akumu, who joined Chiefs from Zambian side Zesco United in January 2020, is reportedly among players Amakhosi are looking to ship out as they are embarking on a rebuilding phase that is set to start when their two-window transfer ban expires next month.

In an interview with South African paper, The Sowetan , Akumu said, " I’d really like to be here in the new season and beyond. I want to finish my contract here. But if the club decide otherwise, I will just accept it and look back to say I am grateful that I was part of this wonderful club,’’ the Kenyan told Sowetan.

“This is one of the biggest teams in Africa and to be part of it is amazing… it’s one thing that is a privilege, but you I understand how football works. So in case of the decision to let me go, I won’t take it badly at all.’’

The 28 year old has previously turned out for Gor Mahia (Kenya), Al Khartoum (Sudan) and Zesco United (Zambia). He has featured for Chiefs 35 times since joining in January 2020, at times in defence. Akumu spoke of his experience thus far, saying, " I am a midfielder, a central midfielder, but I can also play as a central defender, I played there before I came to Chiefs. When a coach puts you in a different position to the one you’re used to, it means he’s seen something in you.’’

"“I think I did my best… I helped the team where I was supposed to. I know our overall season didn’t go well because we wanted to finish in the top two but we ended up at number eight, which isn’t that bad because we’ll play in the MTN8.’’
