Did We Really Ever Replace Mbesuma?

During his stay at Naturena, Collins Mbesuma was a sheer marvel to watch. I mean, here is a guy who was the ultimate striker, a goal scoring machine! Mbesuma was like a character straight out of a video game.

He was big, strong, fast and a deadly finisher. When he departed from the Amakhosi village in search for European glory, he left Chiefs helpless, as our beloved club had relied on him so much. They never dreamed of life after the Zambian Assassin.

So the scramble to search the plains of Africa for another Collins Mbesuma began. In 2005, a very large gorilla-ish Ivorian by the name of Serge Djiehoua was unveiled by the Glamour Boys.

This guy was big (even bigger then Mbesuma, believe it or not) and although our hopes were once more raised that we had indeed found another Ntofontofo, he turned out to be a big flop!

Since then, Chiefs have employed various characters in that role, but none have done what Mbesuma did for us way back then.

Do you think we will find another 35 goals a season striker in the mould of Mbesuma?
