Edward Manqele has spoken of the difficult time he had with Kaizer Chiefs during his stay with the club.

Manqele was on the books of Chiefs from August 2015 to April 2017, the striker having joined the club after his first stint with Chippa United in the 2014/15 season. 

Now, with the player back with the Chilli Boys from his second stint with Free State Stars, the 30-year-old says he is enjoying his football again with the Port Elizabeth outfit. 

‘Hlokoloza’, as Manqele is known in football circles, scored Chippa’s third goal as the Eastern Cape outfit beat Chiefs 3-0 in their Absa Premiership match at FNB Stadium last weekend.

“I am pleased to have scored my first goal for the Club but most importantly that I helped my team win on Saturday. Credit should go to all the players and Technical Team for a job well done.

“I am now in a good space, feeling confident again. There are more goals to come before the end of the season. I want to continue scoring or assisting my teammates so that we can secure top 8,” said Manqele as quoted on Chippa’s official website.

The Randfontein-born player says he was confident that he would score against Amakhosi on Saturday.

“When there was an opportunity to come here (to) don the blue and white, I did not think twice. I am grateful for the opportunity offered to me once more by the Executive Chairman (Siviwe Mpengesi).

“The goal meant a lot on Saturday considering the difficult time I had at Kaizer Chiefs. I struggled to get game time and when I started playing I had to go for a surgery and it was then difficult to break into the team. I love scoring goals and I was confident that I will score on Saturday after identifying gaps on their defence. I now want to score more,” said the forward.

The next match for Chippa will be against Ajax Cape Town at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.

“I have not lost against Ajax Cape Town in my career. I have always scored against them since my earlier days at Free State Stars then at Mamelodi Sundowns, It is important that we finish strongly. There are no guarantees in football and even though we are seventh we are not guaranteed a top 8 position,” concluded Manqele.
