Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs Football Club has confirmed that a car, which was hijacked in Johannesburg central, has been found in the parking bay of one its players.

"Yes, we can confirm that. The player is dealing with the matter," said club spokesperson Vina Maphosa on Tuesday.

"It is a private matter."

He declined to say whether the car had been found in the club's parking bay, or the player's residential parking bay.

"You can find that out from law enforcers."

Police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini said the car was found at a complex in Meredale, south of Johannesburg.

"We are still investigating whether the owner of the residence could be linked to the hijacking. I cannot comment about who is the owner."

In mid-November, a family was hijacked at the corner of Commissioner and Crown streets in central Johannesburg.

At the time, police said a car overtook the family's silver Toyota Rav4 as they were waiting at the intersection, and parked in front of it.

Another car parked behind it and cornered them. The crime was caught on closed circuit television footage.

Four men, two armed, confronted the family. They also took two cellphones and R10 000 in cash.
Four days later, police arrested four men in connection with the crime.

The case against Siphelele Mdlalose, 29, Khanyisani Ngubane, 24, Mhlonishwa Mchunu, 36, and Ntobeko Hlatshwayo, 29, is still pending in court.
