OUCH: Caleb’s Kaizer Chiefs stats don’t make for good reading

Life started well for Kaizer Chiefs striker Caleb Bimenyimana. However, things have tailed off badly for the big man from Bujumbura towards the back-end of his maiden campaign at Naturena.

Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana started life well with Kaizer Chiefs but the second half of the campaign was one to forget for the big man from Bujumbura.

Caleb’s Kaizer Chiefs stats tell a story

25-year-old Burundi striker Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana got off to a great start at Naturena, scoring seven goals in his first six games for the Glamour Boys. Since the turn of the year, however, he’s become a fringe squad member and played hardly any minutes. Overall, he’s got seven goals and an assist from 17 PSL appearances. It’s not an atrocious record, but the biggest concern within the camp, allegedly, is that his playing style doesn’t fit the philosophy being instilled by coach Zwane.

Caleb Bimenyimana in a nutshell

Caleb made 21 appearances for Kaizer Chiefs across all competitions this term, scoring eight times. His most recent strike, and his only one this calendar year, came in March from the penalty spot against Motsepe Foundation Championship side Casric Stars in the Nedbank Cup round of 16. He scored a hat-trick of penalties against Stellenbosch, making history in the process as the first man ever to strike three successful spot-kicks in a single PSL match, but scoring from open play has been an issue for the big man from Bujumbura in Burundi.

Will he be shipped out of Naturena?
