Kaizer Chiefs fullback Ramahlwe Mphahlele has stated that he intends on remaining at Naturena, until he helps bring success back to the club.
The 29-year-old joined the Amakhosi from Absa Premiership rivals Mamelodi Sundowns three years ago, but is yet to win silverware in his time with the Soweto giants.
Mphahlele, who extended his Chiefs stay in March, is eager to help end the Glamour Boys trophy drought. The club last won a trophy way back in 2015, but Ersnt Middendorp's men will be favourites to lift the Nedbank Cup in Durban next month.
"It was very important to extend my contract here because, like I said, I came here to help the club achieve things, and it’s just a check point of saying, ‘Okay, there’s a checkpoint to your dreams and your achievements,’” said Mphahlele as per Kick-Off.com.
“I want to stay here until I win [silverware]. I wouldn’t just come here and not win anything, and the next thing, I leave – no, I’m not that kind of person.
“I came and I want to help the team, and that’s what I’m going to do. Until it happens, I’m going to be here [at Chiefs]," he concluded.
In total, Mphahlele has scored three and assisted a three goals in 27 appearances across all competitions this season.
