Kaizer Chiefs are believed to be battling Al Ahly in an effort to bring home Bafana Bafana star Luther Singh.

Chiefs are believed to be ready to make some big statements to kick off a new era at the club.

One of the changes that is set to kickstart the new era is a new coaching staff. They’ll then be given the necessary tools in an attempt to restore pride in the Chiefs badge. One of those recently mention is Singh. 

Chiefs face stiff competition for Singh from Al Ahly

According to Soccer-Laduma, Chiefs are currently facing some stiff competition for Singh’s signature. This coming from Egyptian giants Al Ahly. It is believed, however, that Amakhosi are currently leading that race.

“As much as Chiefs are in the forefront right now they face stiff competition from Al Ahly of Egypt. But with him and his representatives, Chiefs are their first priority and that gives them the chance to sign him. So let’s just wait for few days or weeks and things will be done,” said the source to the publication. 

Singh has been a free agent since the turn of the year, after being released by Serbian side FK Cukaricki. There he only managed to score 2 goals in 10 appearances. Since moving from Portugal to Denmark, it has gone downhill for the former youth international. Maybe a move back to South Africa playing for Chiefs could be exactly what he needs. It could help him regain his confidence and give him a chance to revive his international career. He has not been part of the national team plans under Hugo Broos since 2021.

Singh ready to choose Amakhosi?

Should he end up at Chiefs, he could headline their new era, and be real statement of intent signing! Will he end up at Naturena? It would also send out an even bigger message should they beat Al Ahly to his Singh.
