According to a report by FARpost, Mmodi rejected a bigger offer to sign to Chief. The article read, “Meanwhile, Usuthu pulled out all the stops to win the race for Mmodi’s signature. According to a source close to the club, they offered a salary close to R200 000, which was a better offer than the Chiefs’ one. For Mmodi, it seems like it was not about the numbers, as he elected to put pen to paper at Naturena. However, on the other hand, Chiefs had a better signing on-fee than the one of AmaZulu.” He also turned down an offer from the Orlando Pirates, which his former agent had been pushing for. His fee at Kaizer Chiefs is still unknown.

Pule Mmodi has played for the Free State Stars, Mangaung Utd., and Uthongathi. He was a left-winger for the Lamontville Golden Arrows FC. He made his debut for the club in October 2020 during a game against Bloem Celtic, which ended in a 1:1 score. He scored a total of 16 goals for the club.
In July 2023, it was announced that Mmodi had signed a three-year contract with Amakhosi. There had previously been a lot of speculation that he was on his way to Naturena. In the same month, Goal.com reported that Solomon Seobe, his ex-agent was “adamant he will get his intermediary service fees out of the player’s pocket instead of Kaizer Chiefs.” The agent claimed he was still representing Mmodi when he signed the contract behind his back.
According to SABC, he said, “He went to Chiefs with another agent, but Pule claims this person was only there to accompany him because he represented himself. I do not believe that to be true. I think it is important to teach these players a valuable lesson to honour any agreements entered into.”
He continued, “I spoke to the president of the union [Footballers’ Union of South Africa] , Salter Motloung. They have offered to get the official contract so that we deal with facts and not hearsay. I am open to a settlement, but failing which, I am still going to take legal action from Pule Mmodi. My fee will come out of his pocket.” In response, Mmodi said, “I signed after our contract ended. But I am waiting.”
