Who Are Kaizer Chiefs' New Faces?

Who Are The New Faces At Kaizer Chiefs?

Kaizer Chiefs have welcomed three new players to training this week, but who are their trio of trialists?

Check out Chiefs' trialists in the gallery above

Jonatan Philippe, Darren Lurie and Arnaldo Gomes have all started training with Steve Komphela's side as they look at bolstering their squad further for the new season, with all three having been playing overseas at their previous clubs.

Reports: Micho Heading For Pirates, Contract Agreed

Chiefs have already signed Teenage Hadebe, Bhongolethu Jayiya and Philani Zulu, but there could be more if any of the three trialists impress.

Philippe: 

The Argentine comes to South Africa after leaving Agrotikos Asteras in Greece at the end of June and arrives with a decent record for 2016/17 after scoring nine goals and grabbing two assists in 34 games across the league and cup.

After leaving South American giants, Boca Juniors, the 29-year-old has played in countries such as Switzerland, Paraguay and El Salvador in recent years. He scored a hat-trick in his last game for Agrotikos as they beat Panelefsiniakos last month.


 

Lurie:

Formerly of Moroka Swallows and Mpumalanga Black Aces, Lurie arrives at Chiefs after leaving Hapoel Afula in Israel and will come back to South Africa with a point to prove having struggled to break into the Absa Premiership in the past. His career in Israel started well as he scored on his debut however he battled to kick on from there.

The 25-year-old has made just four top-flight appearances - all as a substitute - and spent the bulk of his time playing in the MDC where he was among the top scorers in 2014/15. He represented South Africa at the 2013 Maccabiah Games in Jerusalem.

Gomes: 

Having left South Africa in 2014 as a young teenager, Gomes is relatively unknown in South Africa but has now been given the chance to impress at Chiefs. The 19-year-old left Mzansi to join the ProFormance Soccer Academy in the UK before being snapped up by Portuguese side, Estoril.

He joined 1°Dezembro Sintra on loan for a while but battled to make an impact and is now back in the country of his birth as he looks to try and pick up some regular game time. 



It remains to be seen how long Komphela will wait before making a final decision on the trio, though they will all be hoping for a decision in their favour ahead of the 2017/18 season.

@MokGee Meyiwa is an answer in case Katsande get injured or red carded, and besides, we do not need unpaid scouts for Chiefs, just fix the problems your current team is facing

Why Kaizer Chiefs didnt sign Masalesa so he replace Katsande in case he gets booking or gets injury? Because Masalesa was a free agent . As we speak Chiefs doesnt have replacement for Katsande.

Kaizer Chiefs is only focusing on signing strikers but I think we also need midfielders, someone who will replace Katsande and Maluleka.

With Steve still the coach he can sign all the available free agents and the worst part of it is they are gonna be released again next season without even making it to the bench nor playing any official game for Chiefs
