Seven Chiefs Players Who Could Benefit From Macufe Cup

Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas is likely to try out different combinations in their match against Bloemfontein Celtic this weekend.

Chiefs and Celtic will play in the annual Macufe Cup at the Free State Stadium on Sunday. Amakhosi are the defending champions of the tournament, having won last year’s edition under Steve Komphela, who is now the head coach of Celtic, with an impressive 4-2 score.

While there are the trophy and pride to play for, the competitive friendly match could also be used by the coaches to test different combinations that have not been tried out yet in official Absa Premiership matches.

From their side, Amakhosi have some experienced players who have struggled for game-time this season, who would benefit from playing against Celtic on Sunday should they be selected, in the likes of Erick Mathoho, Kgotso Moleko, Gustavo Paez,     

Philani Zulu, Bhongolethu Jayiya, Kabelo Mahlasela and Ryan Moon.

Chiefs’ youngsters like Bruce Bvuma, Brylon Petersen, Siphasakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, Khotso Malope, Wiseman Meyiwa and Letlhogonolo Mirwa are some of the players who would look to get a run in Solinas’ team against Siwelele. 

Speaking about the team’s plans for the match earlier this week, the Chiefs coach told the club’s official website, “The game is important as it will be competitive and give us a chance to try out various combinations, especially with six players away on national duty.” 

Chiefs’ six players on international duty with their respective national teams are Itumeleng Khune, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Godfrey Walusimbi, Khama Billiat, Virgil Vries and Teenage Hadebe.
