If you’re here for all the latest Kaizer Chiefs news, views, reviews and rumours, you’re in the right place. We have the latest on a potential Khune replacement, a huge opinion from Jomo Sono on the title race and a potential full debut for Sibongiseni Mthethwa.
SONO BACKS CHIEFS TO BE DARK HORSES FOR THE TITLE
Jomo Sono has been particularly impressed by Venezuelan schemer Edson Castillo, who already has four goals from the base of midfield.
“[Castillo] he’s a good player. He’s top of the range. He will be worse now when he’s got [Sibongiseni] Ox Mthethwa in midfield. They’ll be strong.”
“Chiefs can be the dark horses that can challenge for the league. It all depends on how the coach sets up his team.
“But, if you have Mthethwa and Castillo in midfield, all those who are skilful, you let them go up front. Don’t worry about having them defend.
“But that Castillo is class, he’s a box-to-box player. Mthethwa is a box-to-box player.
“They’ve organised their defence very well with the right back [Reeve Frosler]. He’s a good player. That defence is strong. Both fullbacks [with Edmilson Dove] can attack.
“I like Mthethwa. He’s a good player. The combination [with Castillo] will be unbelievable.
PREDICTED KAIZER CHIEFS STARTING XI VS CITY: MTHETHWA DEBUT?
New man Sibongiseni Mthethwa is in line to make his full debut for Amakhosi against City.
LONG-TERM KHUNE SUCCESSOR FOUND?
According to reports via SoccerLaduma, Kaizer Chiefs have earmarked a long-term replacement for Itumeleng Khune. Khune is now in his 17th season with the club he’s served with such distinction. He recently made his 364th appearance for Amakhosi, the most of any player in the club’s PSL era history. The 2023-24 campaign will be his last at the club as a player.
