Ndulula’s AFCON Performances To Cool Chiefs Interest?

As previously reported, AmaZulu striker Bongani Ndulula was said to have attracted interest from league leaders Kaizer Chiefs as the club searches to address their striking department issues.

However, with Ndulula’s showings in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations being below par, will Chiefs reconsider such a move?

Having a glance at the already star-studded Amakhosi attack, Ndulula would have to compete with David Zulu, Bernard Parker, Siphelele Mthembu and Katlego Mphela for a place in the starting line-up at Naturena. This may even scare off the player himself, as his regular game time at Usuthu has earned him a regular spot in the Bafana Bafana setup.

Also, he is what you call an inactive striker, an authentic number nine whose duty is to hold the ball up for players around him to feed off the second ball. As we know, coach Stuart Baxter liked utilising Kingston Nkhatha due to him being a mobile and hardworking striker.

Ndulula, on the other hand, is not a striker who will run from the first whistle to the last, and is unlikely to emulate the now departed Nkhatha in that regard. Should he sign for Chiefs, he would likely be used as a player who could add a different dimension to the rest of the strikers at Naturena.

Having said that, should Chiefs take Ndulula’s performance during AFCON into consideration when deciding whether or not they should sign him?
