Chiefs Looking To Rebuild And End Trophy Drought With New Signings
Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly wasting no time in their recruitment drive ahead of the next season, having already secured the signatures of three players. The club has confirmed the signing of SuperSport United center-back Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, while also being linked with Mduduzi Mdantsane and Given Msimango.
After a season that extended their trophy drought, Chiefs are expected to continue their rebuild and clear out more players who have not delivered any silverware during their stay at the club.
The club has been linked with a number of players, including Junior Mendieta, Sibongiseni Mthethwa, Jamie Webber, and Khanyisa Mayo. According to reports, Chiefs will sign Mthethwa from Stellenbosch FC, but are unlikely to secure the signature of Mendieta.
Chiefs desperately need a powerful midfielder who can cover ground and make passes, like Mthethwa, as well as a playmaker who can score and assist, like Mendieta. However, if Chiefs had to choose between the two, Mthethwa might make more sense given the recent signings of Mdantsane and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo in those playmaking positions.
According to The South African, Stellenbosch FC has technically agreed to release Mthethwa, and coach Steve Barker is already working on finding a replacement for him. While Mthethwa is expected to join Chiefs, it remains to be seen if they can also secure the signature of Mendieta.
Chiefs will be hoping that these signings can help turn their fortunes around after another disappointing season. The club’s management and coach Arthur Zwane are reportedly already planning for the next season, as they look to rebuild and add quality to their squad.
With the transfer window fast approaching, it will be interesting to see which players Chiefs will be able to bring in and whether they can mount a serious challenge for silverware in the upcoming season. For now, the focus is on securing the right signings and making the necessary changes to bring success back to the club.
