“Which Playmaker Should Chiefs Sign?” – Reader’s Voice

Kaizer chiefs have exciting youngsters ready to step up to the first team and Steve Komphela has promoted Nkosingiphile Ngcobo to the first as he resumes his search for a player that can take ownership of a position that has been problematic ever since Reneilwe Letsholonyane left the club to join SuperSport United.

Ngcobo, who stars for Amakhosi’s MDC side and has been touted to become the next Doctor Khumalo because of his style of play, but that could take some time as he needs to adjust to the demands of the PSL.

Wiseman Meyiwa has already been training with the first team but has to compete with the likes of Willard Katsande, Keagan Buchanan and Lucky "sheriff" Baloyi. Depending on whether Komphela will still be the coach next season, Amakhosi management could look to sign a player that will fill the position and make the team tick in the middle of the park. Hendrik Ekstein could be loaned out, which will not please the fans, but could be a good move for the player.

Chippa United's injured Buyani Sali could easily play for Chiefs, as would Ajax Cape Town's Grant Magerman. Chiefs fans don’t know who management have set their eyes on and the club could look in leagues abroad to sign a playmaker that has the ability to dictate the pace of the game.

One thing that needs to be done is that Komphela must give youngsters such as Meyiwa and players such as Buchannan a chance to show the fans what they can do in the gold and black jersey before opening the cheque book to sign other players linked with Chiefs.

Which playmaker or attacking midfielder should Kaizer Chiefs try to sign?
