Solinas Seeks Defender’s Amakhosi Return
Word reaching the Siya crew is that Giovanni Solinas is looking to try and cut short Lorenzo Gordinho’s loan with Bloemfontein Celtic and have him return to Kaizer Chiefs.
Gordinho signed a year-long loan with Siwelele in January of last year in one of the most surprising moves of the transfer window, with Steve Komphela opting to rather use the likes of Daniel Cardoso, Erick Mathoho and Teenage Hadebe instead.
Now, with Komphela at Celtic, Siya sources have suggested that Solinas is eager to try and bring Gordinho back to the club to add to their options in central defence as they go into the 2018/19 season.
The ball, however, is in Celtic’s court given the loan agreement that was put in place, and it remains to be seen whether Amakhosi management will be able to persuade Siwelele to cut the loan short and allow him to return to Naturena.
Gordinho played 23 games for both clubs in all competitions last season, helping them keep nine clean sheets along the way.
