Kaizer Chiefs profile:
Name: Siboniso Gaxa
Team: Kaizer Chiefs
CBL last Year: Gaxa was substituted in the 90th minute
2012/2013 PSL Stats: Played 25, Scored 1
The signing of Siboniso Gaxa was possibly one of the biggest transfers of last year’s off-season. The Bafana Bafana international didn’t disappoint the Amakhosi faithful, by delivering one of the most consistent seasons, keeping the likes of Jimmy Tau on the sidelines.
The former SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns defender will be looking to overcome his hamstring injury which he picked up in Chiefs’ Nedbank Cup victory over SuperSport United.
Gaxa started his rehabilitation last week and is said to be working hard to get himself ready for the start of the new season.
Pa is one of the highest ranked defenders, with over 230 000 votes. He looks certain to start in this year’s Carling Black Label Cup against Orlando Pirates, should he manage to shake off his injury.
