Top South African Premium League Kaizer Chiefs probably have one of the most expensive payrolls in the country, and here we’re going to list the top five most paid players in their club.
5 – Willard Katsande
Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande is an integral part of the squad and is reportedly earning a monthly salary of around R200 000 and has recently renewed his contract with Chief.
The Zimbabwean-born player proved to be an important part of the Chiefs squad and took over the captainship after Itumeleng Khune was injured.
4 – Eric Matoho
Defensive player Eric Matoho has appeared 24 times for Kaizer Chiefs, and he and Daniel Cardoso have been an integral part of the club’s success.
Known as “Tower” renewed his contract with Chiefs and is reportedly earning around R220 000 per month, and has committed to spending his prime at the club.
3 – Bernard Parker
Bernard Parker had an unsuccessful bid in the European Football League with Dutch club FC Twente, which saw him return to South Africa in 2011.
This, however, saw him excel in the SA Premier League with the Kaizer Chiefs, and he was even called to the National Bafana Bafana Team.
Parker is reportedly earning a cool R300 000 every month and is the third highest paid player at Chiefs.
2 – Itumeleng Khune
Khune is arguably one of the greatest soccer players in South Africa and is considered the best goalkeeper in the country, which probably justifies his huge pay check at Chiefs.
He had a bad 2019 season of multiple injuries, but all this didn’t stop the club from paying him his monthly salary despite being sidelined.
Khune signed a multi-year deal with Chiefs, but may soon be fighting for the top spot with Daniel Akpeyi, who helped them win the ABSA Premiership League title.
1 – Khama Billiat
Billiat is currently the highest paid player at Kaizer Chiefs and in the South African PSL with a yearly salary payout of R10 million, and a monthly salary of around R830 000.
The Zimbabwean born playmaker has yet to prove his worth to the team after a string of injuries.
He signed a contract that expires in June 2021, so we still have to see him shine after a successful run with Mamelodi Sundowns.
The salaries listed here exclude such things as sponsorships, bonuses and other sources of income.
