As The South African website reported a few weeks ago, Amakhosi recalled the 24-year-old Burundian to sign for the Glamour Boys after coach Arthur Zwane reportedly decided against signing him.

The towering center forward has since made two substitute appearances against AmaZulu and Marumo Gallants. We’ve made a few observations on the 1.9-meter-tall number nine.

  1. Speed: Caleb is not the quickest center forwards we’ve seen in a Chiefs jersey, maybe he has not shown his acceleration yet?
  2. Physique: The Burundian is clearly a powerfully strong physical unit, defenders won’t be too keen to face him
  3. Fouls: Caleb is quite aggressive in physical battles with defenders, he has committed several clear fouls in the 65 minutes he’s played so far
  4. Touch: His technical touch is not poor nor is it exquisite. Including speed, he looks like a mix of Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro on the ball
  5. Character: He has shown expressive body language when teammates haven’t played the right ball.

Meanwhile, the Burundian is expected to earn a possible first start against Gavin Hunt’s exciting SuperSport United team on Saturday night at the FNB Stadium.
