This is certainly a situation I feel Kaizer Chiefs need to monitor. Mamelodi Sundowns winger Elias Pelembe is yet to put pen to paper at Chloorkop with his contract expiring at the end of the current Premier Soccer League season.
Having said that, with Mandla Masango possibly leaving Naturena for a move abroad, could Pelembe be the perfect replacement for Bullet?
Most definitely! For years Domingez has been one of the best, if not the best right winger in the PSL. Before moving to Sundowns, Pelembe set the league alight with SuperSport United, which then paved the way for the Brazilians to purchase the flying winger.
In terms of style and technique, Pelembe can match Masango toe-to-toe. He has all the right tools in his shed to replace Bullet and is no doubt a proven star in South Africa.
Both Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United are said to be keeping an eye on Pelembe’s situation, but do they really have the financial flexibility to afford Pelembe? I don’t think so.
This is where we could come in. We are the biggest club in the country and have the power to employ some of the biggest names in South African football. Also, I feel Pelembe is the perfect substitute to Masango if required.
With that said, should we sign Pelembe?
