Kaizer Chiefs have balanced the equation with their player movements. Here is the full confirmed list of SIGNINGS and EXITS.
Molefi Ntseki is in charge of a very different looking squad to the one that Arthur Zwane coached last season.
In fact, there are 16 changes to it with EIGHT new faces and EIGHT departures.
ALL EIGHT NEW CHIEFS SIGNINGS
- Thatayaone Dithlokwe
- Given Msimango
- Mduduzi Mdantsane
- Pule Mmodi
- Ranga Chivaviro
- Edson Castillo
- Tebogo Potsane
- Efmamjjasond Gonzáles Palacios

FULL LIST OF AMAKHOSI DEPARTURES
- Erick Mathoho
- Siyabonga Ngezana
- Phathushedzo Nange
- Cole Alexander
- Thabani Dube
- Khama Billiat
- Kgaogelo Sekgota
- Caleb-Bonfils Bimenyimana
One thing is clear – Amakhosi management have placed a heavy focus on their attacking firepower. The likes of Chivaviro, Mmodi, Potsane and Gonzales are all attacking players.
Therefore, they step in for Bimenyimana, Billiat and Sekgota.
Furthermore, even Mdantsane and Castillo are relatively attack-minded midfielders. The difference between Amakhosi’s frustrating and trophy-less season last year and Orlando Pirates and Sundowns success was their attack. Sundowns had Peter Shalulile (23) and Cassius Mailula (15).
In contrast, Pirates had Monnapule Saleng notching up double-figures (15 goals and 11 assists). This is something Amakhosi have not had for several seasons. Hopefully, Chivaviro or Gonzales can change this (or even Ashley Du Preez).
