Ekstein's contract with Kaizer Chiefs is expected to end after the current season. TimesLive reported that Ekstein has rejected a new, improved two-year contract with the team.
On Thursday morning, he posted a tweet, saying: "Till We Meet Again," in reference to his departure from the team.

There are some Pirates fans who are happy at the possibility of Ekstein joining them. Ao banna! No wonder nobody gets bothered by that team winning nothing to five seasons.— Equal Opportunity DMer (@Mkhu28) April 26, 2019
Bobby did to Ekstein what he did to Mandla Masango. He doesn't want to pay these players and these player are contributing to the team.— Dom' direction (@Un_6othered) April 26, 2019
I was surprised why Ernest middendorp stopped playing him out of the blue when he praised him weeks ago.
Bobby must just leave this team..
Chiefs is going to regret for releasing Ekstein and Paez. Pule wanted an increase because he wasn't paid enough. Remember guys low pay results in low moral of an employee which also leads to poor performance as was in the case of Ekstain.— Not Adv Ngcukaitobi (@AdvNgcukaitobi) April 25, 2019
