Chiefs' New Acquisitions – How Patient Will They Remain?

With Kaizer Chiefs being the biggest club in South Africa, high expectations are placed on their players to perform. In turn many players find themselves on the bench more often than not as they come to grips with what it takes to become an Amakhosi star.

With that said, how patient will these players remain before feeling the urge to leave Naturena all together?

One of the most unfortunate players to feel the wrath of what it takes to become a Chiefs star is Levy Mokgothu. Ahead of him is one of the country’s best left-backs in Tsepo Masilela, and as long as he continues his rampaging form, Mokgothu will, without a doubt, struggle to knock Masilela off his perch.

Another player who hasn't seen much game time this season is Ovidy Karuru. He has two problems keeping him out of the team - one, Reneilwe Letsholonyane ,and two, George Maluleka. These players have been at their very best this season and it will take something special from Karuru to convince coach Stuart Baxter that he should be ahead of Mido and Yeye.

There have also been three promotions to the Chiefs first team from the reserve squad. Hendrik Eksteen, Chris Matombo and Zitha Macheke have all graduated to the first team, however, they will have to wait their turn for first team football.

Lastly, striker Siphelele Mthembu was signed on a free transfer at the beginning of the current Absa Premiership from Platinum Stars. However, Shaka Zulu is yet to make his mark on the team. With Chiefs making reinforcements in the striking department by signing David Zulu, will Mthembu be forced consider other options?

What do you say, should these players seek game time elsewhere?
