Booysen Or Pirates’ Chabalala For Quality Chasing AmaZulu?

It could either be former Kaizer Chiefs defender Mario Booysen or Orlando Pirates’ Justice Chabalala for AmaZulu as the KwaZulu-Natal club is considering making defensive reinforcements to the squad.

Newly appointed AmaZulu coach Jozef Vukusic has identified a need to add a centre-back to the squad as he attempts to change the fortunes of the club, with a view of moving the team up the Absa Premiership log.

As reported in edition 1143 of Soccer Laduma, AmaZulu have identified Chabalala from Pirates as a potential signing for the team for the next transfer window in January.

“The player’s representatives will engage Pirates again in the next transfer window, if his situation doesn’t change, and ask for a move on loan. What’s frustrating the most about Chabalala is that he is still young and there are clubs that are very keen on his services,” said the source.

Chabalala does not seem to be in Pirates’ plans under interim coach, Rhulani Mokwena, with the 27-yearold centre-back having made only one appearance for the team to date.

However, with the Giyani-born player’s contract with the Soweto giants running until 2021, after the club exercised their two-year option towards the end of last season, Usuthu are looking at the other options for in case they struggle for the former Free State Stars player.

Meanwhile, the Durban-based club has welcomed Booysen for training, as revealed by the Siya crew during the week.     

AmaZulu’s media officer Brilliant Mkhathini said about the ex-Chiefs defender’s presence at the club, “He has just arrived and he started training yesterday (Wednesday). So, it’s just an assessment at this stage. You know, he hasn’t been in action for long, so we will see what happens.”
