CHIEFS KEEN TO BAG A BRAZILIAN

According to KickOff.com, Amakhosi top brass will turn to former Real Madrid manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo if their attempt to sign Pitso Mosimane end up being futile.

Coach Vanderlei (Luxemburgo) is weighing up his options now and the idea of Kaizer Chiefs is an option that he is open to considering. The project at hand is what will influence his decision to join his next club more than money issues because he has made a lot of money before. Having played in South Africa, I think the Chiefs project will be suitable for him because he will be able to bring back the club to where it belongs. Experience-wise, he is second to none because he has handled superstars like Zidane and Beckham.” said agent Pio Nogueira.
