Bobby Motaung Unpacks Kaizer Chiefs Transfer Plans
Kaizer Chiefs Football Manager Bobby Motaung has remained tight-lipped on the possible signing of Mduduzi Mdantsane, stating that an official announcement will be made in due course. However, he did hint that the club will be “beefing up” their squad for next season.
Mdantsane, who is the all-time goal scorer for Cape Town City, has been heavily linked with a move to Chiefs, with talks suggesting that a three-year deal has already been signed. Motaung refused to confirm the signing, saying that there are great things to be revealed in the future.
Chiefs have already secured the services of SuperSport United and Botswana defender Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, as well as TS Galaxy captain and defender Given Msimango, whom Motaung did confirm in January.
The club is aiming to support coach Arthur Zwane, as they have the opportunity to play in multiple CAF club competitions next season. Chiefs are currently fourth in the DStv Premiership standings but are hoping to secure a higher position to qualify for the CAF Champions League. Alternatively, they could finish in third place or win the Nedbank Cup to secure participation in the Confederation Cup.
Revamping the Squad
Motaung acknowledged that the team has been revamped this season and has a lot of young players. However, he stated that they will be beefing up the squad for next season, suggesting that there will be significant signings during the upcoming transfer window.
Chiefs recently made it to the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup after beating Royal AM 2-1 in extra time, and they will now face rivals Orlando Pirates in the Ke Yona Cup last four next month.
