The Premier Soccer League has released the list of players registered by Kaizer Chiefs for the 2013/14 season, to date.
It was a quiet off-season for Chiefs following their league and cup double in 2012/13, with the club having released more players than they signed.
Stuart Baxter’s only two new faces by the start of this campaign were that of on-loan returnee, Knowledge Musona, and talented young left-back Simphiwe Mtsweni.
Meanwhile, five players that were partially involved in their title winning campaign last season were let go, some on loan and some permanently.
The Amakhosi faithful had been hoping for their team to bolster their ranks even further, although following the close of the transfer window, that can only happen should they find any suitable free agents.
Soccer-Laduma takes a look at the Glamour Boys’ 2013/14 season squad:
Players In: Knowledge Musona (Loan), Simphiwe Mtsweni.
Players Out: Abia Nale (Black Aces) Sthembiso Ngcobo (AmaZulu – Loan), Lincoln Zvasiya (OFI Crete – Loan) Jimmy Tau, Arthur Bartman (retired).
