Cape Town - Bobby Motaung says it was not an easy decision to allow defender Lorenzo Gordinho to leave Kaizer Chiefs after ten years at the club.
Gordinho has joined Bidvest Wits on a two-and-a-half year deal, bringing to an end a ten-year association with the Glamour Boys.
The 25-year-old played 70 times for Chiefs in that period and was first-choice centre-back the last time the Amakhosi won major trophies - the Absa Premiership under and MTN8 under Stuart Baxter in 2014/2015.
And Motaung admits it was not easy to see one of their most loyal players of the last decade exit the club.
"Lorenzo leaving us is a touchy one, especially as he has been for almost ten years with us, starting at our youth development. His challenge, however, was getting game-time," Motaung told the club's official website.
"We also didn’t want to block his career, as he got an opportunity to join another top club. We thank Lorenzo for his service to Kaizer Chiefs in all those years."
Chiefs next face a trip to Black Leopards in an Absa Premiership clash on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
