Morgan Gould is set to join other big names in the Indian League after being released in a massive players’ clear out by Kaizer Chiefs.

Gould was among the players that did not have their contract renewed at Kaizer Chiefs. The club did a 20-player clearout in a bid to reposition the club ahead of the new season.

The 33-year-old former Bafana Bafana centre-back may set his sights on a lucrative contract in Asia, going the way of former top players in the Indian Super League. His agent Glyn Binkin says the player is still considering the move. Gould was a key player in Chiefs’ 2012/2013 PSL title-winning team‚ but garnered only 21 league appearances in his last two injury-plagued seasons.
Binkin said on behalf of his client:

“He enjoyed his time at Chiefs while towards the end of and it didn’t work out for him as well as he’d hoped. He’d never had long-term injuries‚ and then at Chiefs he had two pretty bad injuries.

“But credit to him. Many people would have given up when they had the second injury. But Morgan came back strong and at the end of the season played in all of Chiefs’ last three matches.”

The agent then added that there are a number of options open to the player in Asia, and obviously India. The Indian League has attracted players and some of the biggest name which include Brazil’s Roberto Carlos‚ Lucio and Elano, former Chelsea player Nicolas Anelka, Helder Postiga‚ Florent Malouda‚ Adrian Mutu and others. Florent Malouda played Delhi Dynamos for before joining Egyptian side Wadi Degla.

Gould has 27 caps for the South African national team. He missed out on the 2010 World Cup the country hosted due to injury. He played from 2008 to 2010 for SuperSport United helping them to three league titles before joining Chiefs where he has spent four seasons.
