Meanwhile, Amakhosi return to action this afternoon.

According to coach Cavin Johnson’s most recent update on Fleurs, the young defender has been working well.

“Luke is very close as far as that is concerned. Yes, he came in probably three quarters to the season as a free agent and you know he had to work very hard to get himself a club,” Johnson told The Sowetan.

“And he got Chiefs as his next destination and when he started at the village, he had to work very hard. But since we closed in December for those few weeks, he has come back looking a lot fresher.

“And now that we started training, Luke is looking very sharp.

“He brings different types of defenders, central defenders and he gives us a lot of options as far as how we like to play as Chiefs.

“So, we are hoping that he brings more in the game and we just reap from what we worked,” the Chiefs tactician concluded.
