Ex-Chiefs Midfielder’s Form: Six Goals Scored

Former Kaizer Chiefs Midfielder In Great Form For Zimbabwe

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 04, 2017 12:10 PM

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Ovidy Karuru, has now scored six goals for Zimbabwe in the COSAFA Cup that is currently underway in the North West.

Karuru, who was released from Chiefs at the end of 2015/16 season, spent the second half of this past season playing for AmaZulu in the NFD. The 28-year-old is captaining Zimbabwe in the COSAFA Cup and he has done well in leading the team with his impressive performances thus far.

The former Amakhosi man has scored six goals so far in the tournament. With his goals, Karuru has become the second all-time highest goal scorer at the COSAFA Cup.

He has helped Zimbabwe to qualify for the semi-finals of the competition.

When confirming his departure from Chiefs last year, Karuru’s parting message for the club’s supporters was an emotional one.

“To all Amakhosi supporters thank you for the support you gave me for the past 2 years though I didn’t get a chance to prove myself but thank you for the messages of encouragement that you been sending...may God bless you all...and to Zimbabweans who been following my progress...sorry for letting you all down.....but I promise you come next season where ever I will go....I WILL PLAY AND I WILL PERFOM.....so those who know me and who have seen me play before...please JUDGE me next season....GOD BLESS YOU ALL,” Karuru’s wrote on Facebook at the time.

It's so sad that he was not allowed to play at Chiefs at all. If was given even 5 games to prove himself it would have been better. If one of the bigger teams sign him Chiefs will leave to regret.

@Junior25 I hope he becomes Chiefs' worst nightmare, Karuru has done well now he needs a Psl Team and he will continue with what he is doing at the COSAFA tournament.

Very skillful player indeed, I was so sad to see him leave the club yet he was outstanding in the MDC and had fans screaming number 7 after each and every game yet he was overlooked completely for the 1st team. His ability to take on players on 1 v 1 situations is just unbelievable

Mabena is currently a free agent having seen his contract with Platinum Stars expire last Friday (June 30). A source close to the player has confirmed that a move to Amakhosi is on the cards, and that if all goes according to plan, Mabena will be at Naturena this week. "The club is doing everything to sign him. The deal could be concluded this week. As you might be aware, Mabena is now a free agent. His contract [with Stars] expired last week Friday," the source told Goal. Mabena featured prominently for Dikwena last season, making 31 appearances in all domestic competitions. He found the back of the net four times and claimed seven assists. Should Mabena end up at Chiefs, he would be following in the footsteps of Siphelele Mthembu, who also played for both Orlando Pirates and Dikwena. Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung previously shot down reports that the club was after the signature of Mabena.
