As reported by the Siya crew, Philani Zulu has joined Chiefs from Maritzburg United, while Zimbabwean defender, Teenage Hadebe, is also at the Naturena club.

Amakhosi confirmed their signings on the club’s official Twitter account.  

Chiefs’ club statement on their official website read as follows:

Kaizer Chiefs began their 2017/18 preseason training programme this morning with two new faces among the squad; Philani Zulu who joins from Maritzburg United and Zimbabwean International, Teenage Hadebe from Chicken Inn F.C.

The team returned last Thursday to undergo medicals and started full training this morning under the guidance of coach Steve Komphela and his new assistant Patrick Mabedi.

Philani Zulu is 28 years old and plays as a left wing back, while Hadebe is 21 and is a centre back and recently played in the much acclaimed Zimbabwean senior national team. Both players signed for an initial three years with the option to extend their stay with Amakhosi.

“We have been working throughout the break to negotiate and finalise some of these deals,” said Amakhosi’s Football Manager, Bobby Motaung. “We need to make sure that coach Steve and his new assistant have a strong team that will compete fiercely in the new season.”

Komphela has worked with Zulu in the past and the player came highly recommended because of his skill and versatility. Hadebe trained with Kaizer Chiefs during last year’s preseason but the club could not secure his signature at the time.

“We welcome the duo to our stable and hope that they live up to expectations and make our supporters happy,” added Motaung. “We have been monitoring them and we really felt they could help improve our squad.”

Promotions? For what? I'm so so annoyed by all these things. Chiefs promote young players every year but they don't even touch the and there after, release them. Pirates signed Sangweni, they will announce Ndumiso Mark my words on this. Ntshangase from Leopards is there for the taking but we all know, they won't go for him. This team is boring. The only thing they know is releasing players and make no quality replacement. Aag sies mana.
