Chiefs’ Injury Issues Before Season Opener

Kaizer Chiefs Have A Few Injury Concerns Before Facing Mamelodi Sundowns

Kaizer Chiefs have a host of injury concerns going into the first game of the season, with four of their players – including two new signings – battling with niggles. 
 
Check out Chiefs' potentially injured players in the gallery above
 
The Amakhosi lost their final pre-season encounter over the weekend as they were beaten 1-0 by Cape Town City, with Craig Martin scoring the only goal of the game at Mbombela Stadium one week before their opening clash with Mamelodi Sundowns.
 
 
Both Siphiwe Tshabalala and Khama Billiat had to be taken off in the game due to injuries, although at this stage it remains to be seen whether they are serious complaints or if they were substituted as a precautionary measure.
 
The Siya crew have also been led to believe that Letlhogonolo Mirwa and Gustavo Paez are both carrying minor knocks, although the former at least is expected to be fit to face Masandawana on Saturday afternoon. 
 
Meanwhile, George Maluleka was previously spotted in a moon boot as he nurses an injury ahead of the opening game, and it appears that he is a doubt for the encounter at Loftus Versfeld Stadium. 
 
Chiefs’ players have been given the day off today as they go into their final preparations for the first game, and all of the aforementioned players are set to be assessed this week once they return to training with the new head coach, Giovanni Solinas.

Whether ts mind games or not but both players perform miracles when they are fit. One of the reason Khama left he was always injured and as much as Pitso loved him but injuries let all of us down. Wish them a speedy recovery

If Biliat is not there and Tshabalala as well, it means it is still Kaizer Chiefs of the three seasons ago. The problem at Chiefs is not a coach but the underrated squad that Chiefs has. Players that failed to impress from Wits, Martziburg United and Cape Town City released on free as deem surplus to the team. A player who was always on the bench from all those underrated teams, at Chiefs we bring them to the book and consider them to bring us glory, what a joke. Bongolwethu Jayiya failed in those three teams, can someone with a good mind tell me whether that player will bring us glory at Chiefs? Mirwa from Motsepe League not even NFD will that kind of a player bring us glory? While the quality of Thandai Ndoro is without a team, Manyama wants to play at home but nothing have said about him at Naturena. Musa Lebusa is gone to the greedy Sundowns, Chawapiwa is still with Baroka and Chiefs has muscles to buy all those players.

Not confident at all about our first game, no matter which angle I look at KC. Sundowns deems too strong for us, little bit of hope though

It was said this Mpumalanga cup was to be contested by 4 teams but I only hear about this Chiefs vs CTC . How did other teams play? Who won the tourney eventually? If Chiefs had won it or at least gone to the final we would be told million times about who won it , mncfxm !

In terms of match fitness, readiness and organisation we are far off Chiefs.That alone can determine the outcome of the game.

As much As I want to console myself and trust tht my team wil perform this comin season bt Im stil nt convinced tht w signed enough especially th midfield wher Katsande is deployed,a good midfielder like Phathutshedzo Nange of Black leopards and former captain of ajax cape town Travis Graham any of those players would change how w play in tht miedfield bcz wit Katsande w r nt dangerous goin forward bt solid when defending wht it help in th end cz w drew 12 games last season bcz of tht
