Amakhosi Boost As Star Duo Return
Kaizer Chiefs look to have been handed a boost ahead of this weekend’s monster clash with Mamelodi Sundowns, with two of their star players returning to full training.
Both Khama Billiat and Siphiwe Tshabalala both limped off during the pre-season friendly against Cape Town City, causing concern amongst the Amakhosi faithful as they prepared for the 2018/19 Absa Premiership season opener.
Now though, according to Siya sources, the pair are back in full training as Giovanni Solinas prepares his side to face Masandawana on Saturday afternoon, and should be available for selection when they take the short trip to Loftus Versfeld Stadium this weekend.
George Maluleka, however, is not expected to feature as he recovers from an injury that has seen him spend some time in a moon boot, and the date of his return to fitness is not yet known at this time.
Chiefs take on Sundowns at 15h00 on Saturday as Solinas looks to get his tenure at Naturena off to a winning start by beating the reigning league champions.
