One such gap is in the striking department. Kaizer Chiefs let go of Samir Nurkovic, Leonard Castro and Lazarus Kambole at the end of last season.

And while new signing Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana has hit the ground running, injuries have plagued the Burundian in his maiden season at Naturena.

Arthur Zwane has since confirmed that the club are indeed searching for a back-up striker but the requirements demand someone extraordinary!

“Realistically, we’re looking for a striker,” the Kaizer Chiefs coach said as quoted by KickOff.

“If we get a striker then yes. But it must be a striker that will come and add value. A striker that can help the likes of Duba in growing, not a player that will just come to add numbers.

“If we don’t get the quality that we’re looking for, we’d rather play Duba. He’ll grow and score goals just as he’s been doing in the DDC.”

“They’re still owe me money for two months and what I said to them is, “just keep your money and give me my clearance” – Chirambadare told Thisisfootball.

“Otherwise they wouldn’t have let me go for free. I was even forced to sign a contract that says if I want my clearance, I will lose two months’ salary.

“I was desperate at that time. Hence, I signed that contract. By the time I got the clearance, Richards Bay were already gone.

“So, that’s how I left the club. Now I thought that let me just leave this matter and move on because it’s very complicated.”
