‘Rusike Not Close To Nkhatha’

Kaizer Chiefs’ striking department has been placed under scrutiny this season with goals from the frontline being hard to come by this season. 

Bernard Parker has netted just half of the goals he managed to secure last season, while the Siphelele Mthembu is the only other striker to find the back of the net for Chiefs in the league this season. 

Matthew Rusike and Killer Mphela are yet to get off the mark in their PSL campaigns, while new signing David Zulu has struggled to settle into the team since his January transfer.

It is no secret that Kingston Nkhatha’s departure from Naturena has impacted the team more than anyone had expected, and former Chiefs striker, Mark Williams, admits that change is needed at the club.

“Kaizer Chiefs definitely need some strikers. They don’t have enough striking power going forward,” he told Fan Park. 

“They talk about [Matthew] Rusike replacing Kingston [Nkhatha]… No, not close to it! They need goal-scorers… 

“Parker is relaxed. He is no longer the Parker that can score goals; his pace is a little bit out and he is almost always playing wide.

“They have to look at where they can get pace too. For instance, that New Zealand boy [Jeremy Brockie] from SuperSport United has been scoring for them.”

Williams’ statements were on the money, but who should Chiefs sign to beef up their attack? Tune into Fan Park on Saturday morning to find out who Chiefs should have on their radar.
