Kaizer Chiefs’ new signing, Anthony Akumu, is working hard in training as he takes aim at his Amakhosi debut, and there may have been a hint as to what number he will wear for the club.

The 27-year-old has long been linked with joining the Glamour Boys. after he parted ways with ZESCO United in Zambia to become a free agent, and yesterday it was confirmed that he has officially joined the club.
After penning a three-and-a-half-year deal at Naturena, the Kenyana international will be eager to push on and get playing for his new employers, hoping to avoid the same fate as the man moved out to make room for him, James Kotei, who left without making his competitive debut.
Chiefs posted images on their official social media platforms of their new signing putting the work at training, during which he was wearing the number 33 on his training kit – possibly a sign of which number he will wear when he does eventually take to the field for his new employers.
It remains to be seen how long it will take for Akumu to secure his work permit to play in South Africa – or indeed whether he’s already got one – but it does seem unlikely, at this stage at least, that he will be able to feature in Thohoyandou against Black Leopards this coming weekend.
What number do you think Akumu should wear for Chiefs?
