Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande insists he is not bothered by the rumours that he could be heading for the exit at the end of the season.

With the likes of youngsters Njabulo Blom and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo being given more game time by coach Gavin Hunt, Katsande has struggled to hold on to his spot in the starting XI.

This has led to speculation that the Zimbabwe captain could be sold when the current season comes to an end, but he is not worried.

"Obviously, speculation will always be speculation," Katsande said, as quoted by Bulawayo24.

"Each and every day there will be speculation about something. We are professionals and we have contracts to honour.

"The most important thing is to focus on a day-to-day basis, that is, to try to give your best every day at training and try your best to improve the team.

"Whatever happens in future, we are going to deal with it when the season ends."

He added: "But for now, our minds are on this situation we are in so that we try and do well and come out of it and end the season on a high.

"We have had a good run in the Champions League, and we just need to continue doing well, but we are not even bothered about what the media is saying or doing.

"The media needs us to make money; the media needs our names to make the headlines that make people eager to talk, make people read news so we will allow them to do whatever they want with our names because at the end of the day they have to make money, but from our point of view we are just focusing on Kaizer Chiefs."
