KANNEMEYER REVEALS TRANSFER FEE YEARS LATER
Former Glamour Boys Fullback David Kannemeyer has revealed the fee Kaizer Chiefs paid to Ajax Cape Town to secure his services back in the day.
“I was no big-name then, I was just me (laughs), just one of the hottest youngsters,” Kannemeyer told KickOff.
“I think my time was up at Ajax at the time, and I also did well with the national team Under – 23’s. So I just thought it was the right time to move on, and also had some struggles at the time at Ajax in terms of getting a bit more money you know.
“And Chiefs came in and they offered a bit more, and it was a big opportunity for me coming from Cape Town to sign for Chiefs at the time.
“I did meet the chairman (Kaizer Motaung) before in Cape Town before I went on to sign.
“Obviously when they spoke to Ajax everything was agreed upon, and ja it was a no-brainer for me to go. That time people would always say if you don’t play in Joburg you won’t make the national team, but I made the national team playing for Ajax.
“I’m not too sure what happened with the Turkey move, but I think it had to do with money. I think Chiefs paid Ajax around R700 000, I’m not too sure, if I remember correctly I think I had about six months left on my contract at Ajax.
“If it was today my transfer fee would have been millions, you never know the clubs today pay big monies.
“It’s just unbelievable what the clubs are paying for players today, and they should appreciate that and invest the money properly,” the former number three concluded.
