Bobby: We Won’t Stop Searching Until We Find Our Man!
Bobby Motaung Says Kaizer Chiefs Still Want A Striker
Kaizer Chiefs’ team manager, Bobby Motaung, has defended his side’s lack of activity in the transfer market, saying that their hunt for a new striker isn’t over now the window has closed.
The Amakhosi were quiet during the window as they brought in Teenage Hadebe, Bhongolethu Jayiya, Dumisani Zuma and Philani Zulu, with fans upset at the lack of a marquee signing given the club’s lack of success over the past two seasons.
However, Motaung believes that they can bring the ‘glory days back’ if the club and fans stay united going forward.
Speaking about the lack of a new striker at Naturena, Motaung said in a press release, “The club invited a number of players for assessment during the pre-season in a quest to bolster the striking force. Jonatan Phillipe from Argentina, Okikiola Afolabi from Nigeria and Abdalla Hussein Kilala from Tanzania were given a chance to train with the team. However, after consultation, the technical team decided against keeping them and were thus released.
“Our search for a formidable striker does not end with the window period closure - we will cast our net far and wide and will not stop searching until we find our man.
“We have been listening to our supporters and we hear their voices. We acknowledge their role and need to know that we are united in this battle of bringing the glory days back.”
Chiefs’ next game will see them take on Cape Town City, a team that has won all four of their games thus far this season.
