Can Mthembu Really Fit In At Chiefs?

With all this talk of replacing Kowledge Musona with a number 9-ish striker, have we perhaps stopped to think that just maybe the Kaizer Chiefs of today are not the Chiefs of yesterday, and that a big centre forward is not needed in the system we play today?

Under Bax, Chiefs have exploited a quicker and more explosive style of play, which is built more on speed and mobility rather than strength and power.

This means that if we were to get that big number nine striker, he would be isolated most of the time, case in point: Kingston Nkatha.

Though Nkatha is built like a holding centre forward, he is rarely employed in that role as he is allowed to be mobile by running on the flanks or through the middle .

 So would Siphelele Mthembu, with his big frame and power, fit into Chiefs system?
