However, it took two months before he earned his first start, and subsequent coaching changes under Dan Malesela, Raymond Mdaka, and Dylan Kerr, along with Dion’s departure in January, led to a significant shift in Chivaviro’s fortunes.
Impressive Performances and Goal Scoring Prowess
Since his debut as a starter, Chivaviro has displayed remarkable goal-scoring prowess, finding the back of the net on 17 occasions across all competitions. Notably, he has contributed seven goals in 10 appearances in the CAF Confederation Cup, propelling Marumo Gallants to the semi-finals.
Young Africans SC Emerge as Front-Runners
During Chivaviro’s impressive run of form, official offers for his services were launched by Sekhukhune United, Azam FC, and Richards Bay. However, it appears that Young Africans SC (Yanga) are now in pole position to secure his signature for the upcoming season.
Sources close to the club have confirmed ongoing negotiations, with Chivaviro enticed by Yanga’s participation in the CAF Champions League and the opportunity to compete for silverware in multiple competitions.
Exploring Options for the Right Move
While Yanga seems to be a favorable option for Chivaviro, he and his representatives are keen to explore all available opportunities and exercise patience in order to make the best career and financial decision. With the recent completion of the season and Marumo Gallants’ relegation, Chivaviro is considering his next move carefully.
Impressed by Chivaviro’s Performance
Head coach Nasreddine Nabi of Young Africans SC has been impressed by Chivaviro’s towering presence on the field, particularly during their encounters in the recent competition. Chivaviro also managed to score a consolation goal for Gallants in their 2-1 loss to Yanga at Royal Bafokeng.
Potential Milestone in South African Football
If the move to Young Africans SC is finalized, Chivaviro will become the first South African player to ply his trade in the NBC Premier League, marking a significant milestone in the country’s football history.
As negotiations progress and Chivaviro weighs his options, the football world awaits his next career move, one that could shape the trajectory of his professional journey and potentially open doors for other South African players in East Africa.
