Killer’s Warning To Kambole, Nurkovic

Being a former Kaizer Chiefs striker himself, Katlego ‘Killer’ Mphela has a few tips for Amakhosi’s new striking pair.

It’s more of a warning for Lazarous Kambole and Samir Nurkovic, who now have the scoring responsibilities at Naturena, like Mphela some five years ago.

“I have played for the national team and Mamelodi Sundowns, but to play for Chiefs is something else,” the 34-year-old, who last week told the Siya crew he was finally hanging up his boots, explained.

“There is so much pressure. More than Bafana Bafana because you go for duty once in a while, so sometimes you can get away with it. When you are at Chiefs that is when you realise how big they are. At some clubs you can do it this week and it’s okay to not repeat it the following week, but at Chiefs you have to always do the job.”

Both Kambole and Nurkovic arrived at the start of the new campaign to inject some firepower upfront for Amakhosi, but are yet to get off the mark in the club’s opening two Absa Premiership, though Nurkovic’s hold up play has been notable.

“With the previous strikers that played at Chiefs it makes it even more difficult because you have to follow Collins Mbesuma, Knowledge Musona and Fani Madida. I feel for the new strikers really. But with the support they have they will deliver – it is one big family there. As long as they (teammates) create chances for them. For Chiefs to sign them means they have seen them scoring goals,” said Mphela.
