Reported Kaizer Chiefs target Vilakazi signs for Sekhukhune

Vilakazi has been training with Sekhukhune since leaving TS Galaxy and has impressed manager Brandon Truter enough to be signed up. After leaving Galaxy, the 33-year-old veteran’s situation led to head coach Sead Ramović having a feisty exchange of words with Pitso Mosimane. Clearly Jingles didn’t agree with how the player was being treated.

Vilakazi has now found a new PSL home at Sekhukhune.

Truter welcomes Vilakazi

“Signed, sealed and hopefully he can deliver for us,” said Truter as per iDiski Times“He has been very good in training, but transferring that from training to the game is key. We have trained extensively without scoring, box entries and finishing.

“We had nothing to show for it against Royal AM, but hopefully, we will get it right. I welcome him. With Vila, the quality is evident. I think he brings composure into the last third – some decision-making and insight into the game.

“He has won trophies, has won leagues and campaigned in the CAF Champions League, played for Bafana – it will be a welcomed addition to the attack.”
