Johannesburg - Even without the required firepower upfront and an indifferent start to the season, Kaizer Chiefs have vowed to fright for honours, according to manger Bobby Motaung. 

In a statement released by the manger, their search for a striker continues, as their waning fortunes continue on a free-fall. 

"Following the window period closure at midnight in the domestic league, Kaizer Chiefs are ready to compete fiercely in the 2017/18 season to build on the tradition of winning silverware the club has enjoyed over the years," said Motaung.

But he remains optimistic with the latest recruits. 
Kaizer Chiefs Remains Optimistic 

“The arrival of Dumsani Zuma from Bloemfontein Celtic, Philani Zulu from Maritzburg United, Teenage Hadebe from Zimbabwe, and Bhongolethu Jayiya from Cape Town City FC will surely help bolster the team’s back-line, midfield and attack.”

“We also announced the promotion of four players from the development ranks to join the first team for the 2017/18 campaign,” says Motaung.

Hadebe is sidelined by injury.

“Goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma and three midfielders Khotso Malope, Wiseman Meyiwa and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo are the four players who have been officially been promoted to the senior team.

“The young men will add youthfulness, inject new energy and quality to the wealth of talent already in the squad, because we need to ensure that the team is strong enough to challenge for the league title as well as the two trophies that we will be competing for this season,” he added.

“The club invited a number of players for assessment during the pre-season in a quest to bolster the striking force. Jonatan Phillipe from Argentina and Okikiola Afolabi form Nigeria and Abdalla Hussein Kilala from Tanzania were given a chance to train with the team,” says Motaung.

Sadly, the trio did not make the grade.

“Our search for a formidable striker does not end with the window period closure - we will cast our net far and wide and will not stop searching until we find our man,” he adds.

Motaung assured the supporters that the club and technical team are listening to their pleas and will ensure that the club’s fortunes change for the better soon.

“We have been listening to our supporters and we hear their voices. We acknowledge their role and need to know that we are united in this battle of bringing the glory days back,” he concluded.
