Kaizer Chiefs icon of yesteryear Doctor Khumalo was excited by the prospect of Ranga Chivaviro turning out in the black and gold.
Khumalo felt he was the kind of player who could do some damage up front for Kaizer Chiefs.
However, his start for Amakhosi has some questioning the scouting abilities of Khumalo.
KAIZER CHIEFS LEGEND APPROVES OF CHIVAVIRO SIGNING
He believes that Chivaviro will get better as he is surrounded by quality.
Khumalo opined that the burly striker could be one of the great Kaizer Chiefs signings.
“Let’s go to Ranga, the former Marumo striker; I looked at him.
“I have seen a glimpse of Sugar Muguyo from Zimbabwe,” Khumalo told iDiski Times.
“I used to travel with my dad when the first team was playing. I’ve seen a glimpse of him. I have seen a glimpse of the late Moran Samora Khulu. I’ve seen Marks Maponyane. I have seen Scara Thindwa. I’ve seen Kingston Nkhatha. There are features of most of those strikers within him.”
NOT A FANCY STRIKER
Khumalo shared that Chivaviro is just the kind of no-frills goalscorer that the Glamour Boys desperately need.
“He’s not a fancy striker and Kaizer Chiefs used to get these kinds of strikers. He is not a fancy striker, but he will always be at the right place at the right time. And the only thing that he wants is to score goals when he’s in the kitchen.
“So when I saw that Pirates wanted the striker I was a little bit hurt and sceptical that ‘Oh no, we can’t lose this one’. But when I saw that we acquired his signature, I was so happy. I need to give it to whoever made it a point that Ranga comes here.
“Believe it or not with a better supply from the midfielders and understanding from the group, from the team this is the player that will resemble all the strikers that I have counted.”
