Nurkovic spotted in Cape Town

Kaizer Chiefs let Serbian striker Samir Nurkovic leave the club on a free transfer despite scoring 12 goals in his first season at the club and becoming a cult favourite. That year, ‘The Kokota Piano’ took the Glamour Boys close to the PSL title but they were eventually pipped to the crown on the final day of the 2019-20 campaign. Since then, a mixture of injuries and a loss of form have hampered his progress and consistency.
