Chiefs Need Pienaar After Missing Out On Benni

When Benni McCarthy entered his final stages of his football career, he made a return to his home country to finish his career, Mzansi style.

He grew up supporting Kaizer Chiefs and, upon returning to South Africa, he expressed his desire in joining Amakhosi, but the club denied him that chance after he was considered to be out of shape and past his prime.

McCarthy went on to join arch-rivals Orlando Pirates where he became a hit, it was this season when Amakhosi experienced a horrific campaign against the Buccaneers as they were haunted by the same man they denied a chance to play for them.

Benni helped Pirates win the league that season after finishing as the top goal scorer.

It could be the same scenario with Steven Pieenar, who is reported to be interested in a move to one of the two Soweto giants. For the fans to see a Premier League experienced player coming to play in the PSL. With his future yet to be determined, two of the Soweto giants stand quite chance to have him on their books next season.

Will Kaizer chiefs learn their lesson in Benni’s negligence should Pieenar come knocking in their door?
