The announcement came on Thursday morning after a disappointing defeat to Supersport United.
ANNOUNCING OF KAIZER CHIEFS’S NEWEST ACQUISITION
Mthethwa’s signing is expected to delight the club’s loyal supporters, who have long awaited this addition to their team.
The 29-year-old midfielder has penned a three-year contract with Kaizer Chiefs, finalising the deal just two days before the current transfer window closes.
A RISING STAR
Prior to his time at Stellenbosch, Mthethwa showcased his skills at Royal Eagles and Black Leopards.
However, it was with Stellenbosch that he truly made a name for himself, featuring in 29 appearances for the Western Cape side.
His impressive performances caught the attention of national selectors, earning him his first cap for Bafana Bafana in September 2022.
Mthethwa’s invaluable experience adds depth and expertise to his already promising talents.
WARM WELCOME FROM AMAKHOSI
Kaizer Chiefs warmly welcomed Sibongiseni Mthethwa to the team, acknowledging his reputation as a highly skilled and experienced player.
Sporting Director Kaizer Motaung Jr. expressed confidence in Mthethwa’s ability to integrate seamlessly into the squad and make an immediate impact on the field.
The club eagerly anticipates outstanding performances from Mthethwa in the upcoming seasons.
In a statement published by the club, Motaung Jr. extended gratitude to Stellenbosch FC for their professionalism throughout the negotiation process and looks forward to continued collaboration in the future.
COMPETITION FOR THE MIDFIELD
Mthethwa will compete for a midfield position amidst formidable players such as Yusuf Maart, Siyethemba Sithebe, and Mduduzi Mdatsane, among others.
This healthy competition within the squad is expected to bring out the best in all players, ultimately strengthening Kaizer Chiefs’ performance on the pitch.
JOINING THE CAMP
The midfield maestro, Sibongiseni Mthethwa, is scheduled to join the Kaizer Chiefs camp on September 25th, where he will begin training with his new teammates.
The anticipation surrounding his arrival is palpable, and fans eagerly await his contributions to the team’s success.
