Royal AM striker Victor Letsoalo has revealed why he didn't join Kaizer Chiefs amidst constant reports linking him with the Soweto giants.

The Bafana Bafana international was strongly linked with a transfer move to Amakhosi, but he eventually ended up staying with Thwihli Thwahla for the current campaign.

Letsoalo, who has scored eight top-flight goals and provided two assists so far this season, has come out to shed light on the matter insisting at no time did the Soweto giants approach him over a possible transfer.

'It was just a rumour'

“That one, it was just a rumour,” Letsoalo said on SAFM as quoted by iDiski Times. “I have never been in any contact with Chiefs or even my agent; we never know about that, it was just a rumour.

“I did not take it serious because a rumour is a rumour, I just had to work because my contract was here, I just had to focus where I am.”

On the team’s next PSL game against Chiefs on Sunday, Letsoalo said: “It’s going to be tough this one, we haven’t been winning so far, and they have been winning, so it’s going to be a tough game.

“But I just take it as a game comes and then scoring goals is a good thing as a forward player, and I’m grateful that I’m scoring goals.

“Any team I want to score every game if it’s possible, it’s not about which team I love scoring against or what, but even if I score against them (Chiefs) it’s a nice record.”

Royal will host Chiefs at Chatsworth Stadium and they will be seeking their seventh win of the season.

Thwihli Thwahla are lying fifth on the 16-team table with 23 points from 15 matches, while Chiefs are second on 25 points from 14 outings.
